BRIDGING THEORY & PRACTICE SERIES - WEBINAR 1: Mining for Meaning
Monday 18 November 2019 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm (AEDT)
It is no longer enough for translators and interpreters to rely solely on their linguistic competence.

The Webinar aims to address this skill set by exploring various research tools and strategies with the purpose of augmenting terminology and usage, building translation memories, as well as acquiring further skills through professional development and cultural competency in a timely and organised manner.
