“Is there more to your job than the daily word chase for the best translation? Consider the long-term view instead: take time to systematically document those words today to improve the quality and speed of your translation in the future. Attend this webinar to find out more about using a terminology management system to increase the efficiency and accuracy of your translations. Plus learn how to build your own system to save, organize, and retrieve words, phrases, acronyms, synonyms, and abbreviations”
