"I glossari sono un elemento fondamentale del nostro lavoro. Ogni tanto ci vengono consegnati insieme alla translation memory per rispettare la terminologia del cliente e a volte è il cliente stesso a chiederci di farne uno mentre traduciamo. A me personalmente piace lavorare con i glossari, perché mi aiuta a garantire una certa consistenza terminologica, sia nel testo su cui sto lavorando (soprattutto se è lungo e ci devo lavorare per più giorni), sia nei testi futuri dello stesso cliente. Lavorare con un glossario ben strutturato può inoltre contribuire ad aumentare la produttività, perché in quasi tutti i programmi CAT è possibile sfruttare la comoda funzione di inserimento automatico del termine dal glossario al segmento. Non sempre però è necessario ricorrere a un costoso e pesante software per creare, gestire e condividere i nostri glossari. Prendendo spunto dall’articolo Low-cost terminology management di Gerrit Sanders, oggi vedremo infatti come realizzare un sistema di gestione della terminologia facile ed econonomico, completamente indipendente dal sistema operativo o dal software CAT, che dura nel tempo e che può essere condiviso con altri colleghi o con il ..."

"Since its inception in 1978, the Theban Mapping Project (TMP, now based at the American University in Cairo) has been working to prepare a comprehensive archaeological database of Thebes. With its thousands of tombs and temples, Thebes is one of the world's most important archaeological zones. Sadly, however, it has not fared well over the years. Treasure-hunters and curio-seekers plundered it in the past; pollution, rising ground water, and mass-tourism threaten it in the present. Even early archaeologists destroyed valuable information in their search for museum-quality pieces.
Today, however, we realize that the monuments of Thebes are a finite resource. If we fail to protect and monitor them, they will vanish, and we and our descendants will all be the poorer. The TMP believes that the first and most essential step in preserving this heritage is a detailed map and database of every archaeological, geological, and ethnographic feature in Thebes. Only when these are available can sensible plans be made for tourism, conservation, and further study.
During the last decade, the TMP has concentrated on the Valley of the Kings. Modern surveying techniques were used to measure its tombs. From the data collected, the TMP is preparing 3-D computer models of the tombs. And of course, the TMP is continuing its excavation of KV 5. For the TMP staff, sharing their work with the interested public is just as important as what they do in the field. This has been done through a series of publications and this growing website."
"This site contains lists of heads of state and heads of government (and, in certain cases, de facto leaders not occupying either of those formal positions) of all countries and territories, going back to about 1700 in most cases. Also included are the subdivisions of various countries (the links are at the bottom of the respective country entries), as well as a selection of international organizations. Recent foreign ministers of all countries are listed separately.
In cases where not even the exact year of the beginning or end of a ruler's term is known, the asterisk (*) is used to indicate dates at which the person is known to have been in office, e.g., *1924 - 1925* means the term began in 1924 or earlier and ended in 1925 or later. All dates are New Style (Gregorian). (f) indicates female rulers. Birth and death years are also provided (b. = born, d. = died, s.a. = see above), but note that the given birth years may be questionable, as different sources often give contradictory information. In cases where it is particularly unclear, the birth year is followed by a question mark (e.g., 1923?) but that does not mean that the year is guaranteed to be correct when there is no question mark. Also, when no death year is given, it should not be taken for granted that the person is indeed still alive."

"These essays are personal and idiosyncratic. They therefore tend to meander, with links in the text elaborating on other related topics. The advantage is that one can read an essay at varying levels of detail; the disadvantage is that, in overlooking a linked term, one easily can miss an additional two or three (or more) essays nested deeper within the broader discussion. Too, as links within one essay lead to another and then another still, there is an increasing tendency to stray from the original subject. The most indulged degree of separation is an essay on aconite poisoning that ends with a discussion of C. cedonulli. There are essays on the pearls of Cleopatra and red mullets, lead poisoning and tulip mania, Nero as the Antichrist and the Amazon types of Ephesus, Caesar's giraffe and conchylomania. But nothing on Roman politics or economics.
When a subject is discussed more than once—for example, the Arch of Claudius, which is mentioned both in Roman Britain and the Aqua Virgo—the reader should remember to click on the link at the top of the page to return to the main essay and on the back button for the previous page. There also are links at the bottom of some pages to other essays of similar interest. All this, no doubt, is rather clumsy when frames would have made for a more elegant interface.
The Encyclopaedia Romana first was posted on April 17, 1997 and, in one way or another, is revised almost daily. There is a discussion of the Roman province of Britannia which, in an excursus, extends to the Norman period, as well as essays on Greek architecture, courtesans, the end of paganism, some tentative essays on Byzantium, and fewer still on the Viking Age.
I am not a classicist but do read the primary sources in their most accurate translations and compare authoritative secondary sources before presuming to make any statement of my own. Students of the literature are commended to do the same. To be sure, not everything presented on the Internet is accurate, but some persistent statements are utterly wrong. For example, the life of Alexander the Great was not saved by his dog Peritas; the Marble Cone is not one ..."

"Welcome to the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy (SEP). From its inception, the SEP was designed so that each entry is maintained and kept up to date by an expert or group of experts in the field. All entries and substantive updates are refereed by the members of a distinguished Editorial Board before they are made public. Consequently, our dynamic reference work maintains academic standards while evolving and adapting in response to new research. You can cite fixed editions that are created on a quarterly basis and stored in our Archives (every entry contains a link to its complete archival history, identifying the fixed edition the reader should cite). The Table of Contents lists entries that are published or assigned. The Projected Table of Contents also lists entries which are currently unassigned but nevertheless projected.
The SEP's Publishing ModelThe combination of features exhibited by the SEP publishing model distinguishes it from other attempts to build scholarly resources on the web. Our open access model has the following features: (1) a password-protected web interface for authors, which allows them to download entry templates, submit private drafts for review, and remotely edit/update their entries; (2) a password-protected web interface for the subject editors, which allows them to add new topics, commission new entries, referee unpublished entries and updates (updates can be displayed with the original and updated versions side-by-side with the differences highlighted) and accept/reject entries and revisions; (3) a secure web server for the principal editor, by which the entire collaborative process can be managed with a very small staff (the principal editor can add people, add entries, assign entries to editors, issue invitations, track deadlines, publish entries and updates, etc.); (4) a tracking system which logs the actions taken at the web interfaces, monitors the state of every entry, determines who owes work and when, automatically sends occasional, friendly email reminders, and provides a summary to the principal editor; (5) software which dynamically cross-references the SEP when new entries are published, and which periodically checks for broken links throughout the content; (6) software which automatically creates an archive every quarter, providing the proper basis for scholarly citation; and (7) mirror sites at universities in other parts of the world, which provide faster access to readers worldwide, provide access when the Stanford server is down for maintenance, and safeguard the digital content as extra backups. The SEP's publishing model therefore has the ability to deliver, with very low administrative and production costs, quality content meeting the highest of academic standards via a medium that is universally ..."

Similarly, if you click on the legend to a map, you might get a more detailed explanation of the topic.Clicking on the arrows will take you page by page through a specific subject, such as American History or Warfare.
Clicking on the Contemporary Context button bar will zoom out to show what's happening in the world at this time in a specific field of human activity. The icons symbolize Cities, Government, War, International Relations, Living Conditions and Economics, respectively.
Although this atlas is non-linear in overall design, its backbone is probably the series of maps illustrating national political systems, so this is probably the best place to start if you have no particular topic you're curious about.If you are curious about a particular topic, I don't have a search engine here, but you might want to use [CONTROL]-[F], and then type in (a) simple keyword(s), like soviet or world war."
"The roads around Pearl Harbor were alive in wartime with vehicles marked "AdComPhibsPac." The waters of Casco Bay were plowed by small boats bearing at their bows the mystic inscriptions, "DesLant" or "SOPA." In a single dim corridor of the Navy Department, "OIR" and "OR&I" indicated adjacent but quite distinct offices of "EXOS."
Altogether the Navy produced, officially or unofficially, thousands of such abbreviations during the war. A few, such as "SecNav," "CominCh," "CNO," "BuPers," and "J.g.," were well-known throughout the service. most of the rest, however, were thrown around in familiar fashion by those immediately concerned, but might be thoroughly mystifying to the rest of the Naval Establishment. it would be difficult to find a person who could even approach a perfect score in identifying "CAFAC," "JOSCO," and "OMPUS," to say nothing of "COLanForASCU," "LanCraBNAW," "NOBDUCHAR," and "PaCorNaLong," even while the war was in progress; as it grows more distant, those symbols will become even less familiar.For the benefit of naval personnel, officials, and scholars who may have occasion to consult correspondence, reports and historical narratives in which such abbreviations occur, it has seemed desirable to prepare a glossary identifying the principal terms likely to be encountered in such documents. The need for such a glossary was indicated by the preparation of various partial lists during the war; none of these, however, covered more than a fraction of the whole.The glossary includes most of the principal Navy, marine Corps and Coast Guard abbreviations in use from 1940 to the end of 1946. Four particular categories have been given in great detail: vessel types, naval aircraft types, commissioned and enlisted personnel designations, and Fleet Post Office numbers. The vessel types, while numerous, are clear cut. For aircraft, the nickname as well as the official designation is given, and the general meaning of the initials indicating function and manufacturer. The personnel designations were changed several times during the period, particularly for reserve officers; these are all included, with cross-referencing to avoid needless repetition. For purposes of security, the names of overseas stations and units were frequently omitted not only from envelope addresses but also from the contents; without the assistance of the list reproduced under "Navy Numbers," it would be difficult to identify the source of letters which simply had the printed headings "Naval District Headquarters, Navy No. 121, FPO New York" or "Naval Operating Base, Navy No. 1504, FPO San Francisco."The general abbreviations fall into two major types. "Commander Philippine Sea Frontier," for instance, was sometimes contracted to "ComPhilSeaFron" and at other times to "CPSF." The former type was whimsically compared by one columnist to the practice of the Russians with their "Politburo" or "Amtogr." Such contractions are much easier to deduce than the more numerous combinations of initials which follow the British practice. Some abbreviations received an official blessing and were incorporated in aviation, communications, personnel or technical lists or manuals; others were often improvised and might vary with the individual taste of the abbreviator. "Service Squadron," for instance, appeared variously as "Seron," "Serron," "Serbon" and "Servron." Those four all appear in this glossary, but naturally it has been out of the question to include all ..."

"LookLex is a Norway based media house presenting North Africa and the Middle East to a mainly western audience. This we do through 3 main channels; reference material organized into an encyclopaedia, traveller's guides to the North African countries and a basic language course in Arabic.
LookLex is founded on an opposition to what we perceive as a Western university-based ideal of presenting the region as positive as possible, in order to balance out an often very negative media image.LookLex aims at defining the region according to international human rights and ideals of equality and respect for the differences between people. We will never excuse the bad, we never demonize, and we never hide the positive.LookLex is not culture-relativist, yet we will aim at interpreting cultures, countries and people according to their own ideals. Within this context, "ideals" will not be limited to what representatives of a people or group say.LookLex will under no circumstance excuse the suppression of women, youth, apostates or homosexuals.Everything on LookLex is credited, you will always know who writes the articles. No anonymous persons, groups or governments have the access to our content. The author shall always be available through e-mail.LookLex is not supported by any governments, organizations, individuals or big advertisers. We have no contact with advertisers, we really never know who advertises with us. We have left this in the hands of professional US-based companies. Our advertisers usually buy big packages from large ad companies spread across thousands of web sites; they usually do not know that their campaigns are run at LookLex.LookLex was originally known as CiAS, and was established in March 1996, and launched all its present major services within the first 6 months: travel guides for North Africa, encyclopaedia for North Africa and the Middle East and a online language course for Arabic. In 1999 the name was changed into LookLex."
