"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 ..."

"We define a phobia as ‘an extreme or irrational fear of or aversion to something’. You are probably aware of the more common phobias, such as arachnophobia (fear of spiders), claustrophobia (fear of enclosed spaces), and agoraphobia (fear of open places), but did you know there are also words which describe the fear of idleness, worms, and even body odour?
Explore the table below to discover the terms for some of the more interesting phobias you may come across. Although if you suffer from logophobia (a fear of words), it’s probably best to step away from this blog now… in fact, our dictionary site may be your worst nightmare!"

"Since the dawn of time, humankind has been situated in a dialectical conflict between good and evil. Humanity has always sought to achieve the values of justice, security, safety and stability to all human beings both within their own communities as well as with other communities. All people are equal and deserve to live in dignity and in an appropriate manner that safeguards their full and integral humanity, without discrimination or prejudice. However, due to limited resources, these values of humanity have, and continue to clash with the needs of both societies themselves and the relationships between societies, resulting in a perpetual struggle to take control of as many resources as possible. The bitter but realistic result of such a struggle has been the division of humans into contentious and hostile nations, classes, categories and groups. And, as some groups have appropriated a larger portion of resources than others, opportunities and capacities have been disproportionately distributed. Instead of all members of the human family achieving justice, equality, security, safety and stability, some groups have, arguably, achieved these values at ,the expense of other groups, thereby consolidating discrepancies discrimination and exploitation, creating a parallel track of fortunate classes with vulnerable and marginalised groups."

"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."

"One of the most popular posts on OxfordWords is our list of phobias. It’s useful for several reasons – either to get the right name for a common phobia (acrophobia meaning a fear of heights, for example), to discover some unusual phobias (nephophobia for a fear of clouds, anyone?), or to check your spelling.
One of the most common categories for fears is animals. Some of these are well-known, like arachnophobia being a fear of spiders. Others are fairly common, like a fear of dogs, but you might not know the correct word –cynophobia. And then there’s zoophobia – a phobia of all animals – which must make life even trickier than a fear of ..."
"Protecting the health of humans, animals and plants at every stage of the food production process is a key public health and economic priority. The European Union's (EU's) food safety policy aims to ensure that EU citizens enjoy safe and nutritious food produced from healthy plants and animals, whilst enabling the food industry — Europe's largest manufacturing and employment sector — to operate in the best possible conditions. This publication is a part of a series that explains what the EU does in different policy areas, why the EU is involved and what the results are"

"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 ..."
