(TOOL) - How to Edit Translation Efficiently | Roman Mironov | Glossarissimo! | Scoop.it

"Many translators do not like editing (reviewing, revision). For this reason, it is important to make editing as pleasant as possible. One way to do so is to avoid making edits on the spot; that is, correcting things you do not like, as soon as you see them.

Incorrect corrections can drive anyone crazy
As an editor, I hate to find out that the changes I made earlier during editing were incorrect and I have to restore them to ..."

(TOOL) - Il foglio di calcolo: un sistema di gestione della terminologia facile ed economico, che dura nel tempo | Tra di noi | Glossarissimo! | Scoop.it

"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 ..."

"Any technical language may be difficult to understand for ordinary people not belonging to the inner circle of specialist professionals. It is extremely difficult to convey complex information in a way that is understandable to most people. An established principle of the rule of law is that the need to be aware of the possible consequences of one’s behaviour implies the possibility of having access to the rules, in a language that is comprehensible to most of the population. Secondly, the exercise of powers in democracies is subject to public scrutiny, which involves a duty of transparency towards citizens at all levels of State activity, from legislation to administration. Moreover, full citizenship requires the possibility of taking part in social and economic life, and this possibility is often mediated by appropriate knowledge of law. Generally speaking, ‘access to law’ may be considered as a crucial aspect of the functioning of democratic systems, and involves:
1. access to information;
2. access to rights and justice;
3. democratic participation in public discourse;
4. social inclusion.

At the same time legal language is specific; it refers to concepts rather than tangible objects that can be drawn, pictured, or represented by symbols, and often adapts an existing ordinary word and applies it to a different object. We have been led, more and more, to believe that anything can be explained in an easy, immediate way. Particularly, commercial advertisements have constantly sought to simplify reality in order to persuade customers that they can understand any message, even the most difficult notions about for example engines, the performance of computers, and the chemistry of cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. While superficial information, as long as it is not seriously misleading or does not affect fair competition between businesses, may be tolerated in advertising, on the contrary in a professional area, where decisions must be taken on the basis of available data, we ..."

(SR) (IT) (EN) (PDF) - Il linguaggio medico | Google Drive | Glossarissimo! | Scoop.it

"Nel presente lavoro esaminerò le caratteristiche del linguaggio medico attraverso l'analisi contrastiva dei testi in lingua italiana, serba ed inglese. I testi che intendo analizzare sono tratti dal sito www.gyneconline.org dedicato alla ginecologia e ostetricia. E' un sito divulgativo, dedicato non solo ai professionisti del settore, ma anche alla gente comune in cerca di un informazione in più legata a questo settore di medicina. Il sito è stato ideato e realizzato dal Dottor Giovanni Zerlotin, il dirigente medico presso il Reparto di Ginecologia e Ostetricia dell'Ospedale Regionale S. Chiara di Trento. Ho deciso di tradurre i testi del sito in questione dopo aver partecipato in qualità di interprete a una serie di lezioni rivolte ai medici della città bosniaca di Zenica che erano dedicate allo screening dei tumori al collo dell'utero. Come preparazione mi è stato consigliato di visitare questo sito che si è rivelato molto utile vista la mia poca preparazione nell'ambito della medicina.
Nel primo capitolo evidenzierò le principali caratteristiche del linguaggio medico percorrendo alcune tappe evolutive importanti per il suo sviluppo. Inoltre farò un breve confronto tra il linguaggio generale ed il linguaggio medico. Nel secondo capitolo analizzerò le ..."

(AR) (EN) (PDF) - Migration Lexicon | IOM Cairo Mission (Google Drive) | Glossarissimo! | Scoop.it

"Migration is not a new phenomenon in the Middle East and this is especially the case for the countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) that since the oil boom of the 1970s have relied heavily on both skilled and unskilled foreign labour to develop their economies. The Middle East accounts nowadays for over ten percent of the world’s total migrants with the oil-rich countries of the Persian Gulf hosting the highest concentration of migrant workers in the world. Migration in the region has a diverse face with the presence of legal migrants, undocumented migrants, refugees and special groups. The growing interest of governments, academic institutions and the media, has produced in the last years a noticeable amount of specialised literature (both in Arabic and in other languages) that specifically addressing Middle East international migration. Government officials concerned with migration, lawmakers, researchers, and more widely international migration experts and practitioners have increasingly felt the need to utilise specialised terminology into Arabic that could accurately describe the multi-layered dimensions of migration. This English/Arabic/French lexicon of migration terminology is the by-product of different activities carried out in the last few years by the Cairo Mission with Regional Functions for the Middle East of the International Organization for Migration (IOM). Although Arabic is no ..."

"MAUDE data represents reports of adverse events involving medical devices. The data consists of voluntary reports since June 1993, user facility reports since 1991, distributor reports since 1993, and manufacturer reports since August 1996. MAUDE may not include reports made according to exemptions, variances, or alternative reporting requirements granted under 21 CFR 803.19.

An on-line search is available which allows you to search the CDRH's database information on medical devices which may have malfunctioned or caused a death or serious injury. MAUDE data is current through the end of the previous month. FDA seeks to include all reports received prior to the update. However, the inclusion of some reports may be delayed by technical or clerical difficulties.

MAUDE data is not intended to be used either to evaluate rates of adverse events or to compare adverse event occurrence rates across devices.

Please be aware that reports regarding device trade names may have been submitted under different manufacturer names. Searches only retrieve records that contain the search term(s) provided by the requester.

The data is also available in zipped files for downloading. The data is updated on a weekly basis.

These files were then compressed ("zipped") in order to save space. For these files to be useful to you, you'll first have to download them, unzip them, and then import them into a database or word processor for your further processing."
