Meeting Description:

Within the framework of the Terminology Week (13-17 Nov.2006, Belgium) TermNet in cooperation with Lessius Hogeschool will organize a workshop on this topic directed towards terminologists, decision-makers and language professionals in organizations.

In the emerging knowledge society and in pace with fast-growing globalization more and more companies, organizations and language communities face the need for an active, systematic and coherent treatment of terminology.

For many language communities or governments there is a need to counter domain loss (the use of English in preference to the main language of the community in science and technology) generally or concerning specific subject fields, to support language preservation activities for minority languages or to overcome the digital divide and foster scientific-technological and economic development in developing communities.

Companies often need to timely adress problems and special legal implications regarding product declaration, description and technical documentation, e-business issues such as product classification and interoperability but also marketing and corporate identity issues in connection with the consistent use of terminology as well as costs caused by miscommunication through the use of inconsistent terminologies.

This workshop is presented by Infoterm, pioneer in the field of terminology policies.

Workshop on Terminology Policies
15 November 2006, Antwerp (Lessius University College)

In this workshop reasons for developing a terminology policy and introducing methods & principles in terminology planning will be discussed. Participants will learn from practical case studies and develop themselves steps and methods suitable for institutions and enterprises that are planning to invest in the formulation and implementation of a terminology policy. This workshop will provide sound guidance to achieve that goal.

On completion, participants will have a clear understanding of

- the objectives and types of terminology policies,
- the policy formulation and implementation process,
- factors that facilitate of or hamper the implementation of a policy
and ways how to use or overcome them

They will be able to apply the terminology policy approach to formulate a customized terminology policy.
