(ES) (EN) - Pequeño glosario de términos jergales y coloquiales en medicina | Fernando A. Navarro | CPD for translators | Scoop.it
"Resumen: Como el lenguaje médico informal no suele ser objeto de recopilación sistemática ni de inclusión en los diccionarios especializados, los términos jergales y coloquiales plantean con frecuencia enormes dificultades para el traductor médico y el intérprete biosanitario. En el presente glosario, que Panace@ha publicado dividido en dos partes, el autor registra y comenta más de setecientos términos médicos ingleses correspondientes al registro jergal o coloquial, usados en los hospitales británicos y norteamericanos, pero que, en su mayor parte, no están aún recogidos en los diccionarios bilingües generales o especializados.Abstract: Since as a general norm informal medical language is not systematically collected or included in specialized dictionaries, technical jargon and colloquial terms often pose an enormous challenge for medical translators and biomedical interpreters. In this glossary, which has been published in Panace@in two parts, the author includes and describes more than seven hundred English medical terms that are part of the technical jargon or colloquial language used in British and North American hospitals but that are not yet included, for the most part, in general or specialized bilingual dictionaries."

(EN) (PDF) - A Glossary of Marine Nature Conservation and Fisheries | Stephen J. Lockwood

"The whole field of fisheries is so beset with jargon and acronmyns that for anyone wishing to understand the issue, it can be a nightmare. Add to that increasing calls to protect marine wildlife, which has led to new terminology, particularly relating to the Habitats and Species Directive. At a time when the European Commission is pushing for consideration of the environment alongside all activities (through a process called integration), it is important to ensure that all those involved with fisheries and the environment have a common understanding of terms. This is why this glossary of terms for marine nature conservation and fisheries was commissioned. There has been wide consultation with a cross section of individuals over the definition of terms, which in itself helped increase common understanding. It is of paramount importance that integration of fisheries and the environment occurs in practice, at the grass roots level and not just in principle. We hope that this glossary will help to achieve such an aim. A number of communications from the European Union stress the importance of disseminating scientific information in a way that is easily understood. The EC Biodiversity Strategy [COM(1998)42] calls on the Community to develop programmes for public information, education and awareness raising on conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity. This should also apply to the Commission’s action plan for biodiversity in fisheries. A similar commitment applies in relation to information on the impact of fisheries on marine ecosystems. "

"The first glossary of common and not-so-common terms and buzzwords for reference to high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) columns and column technology was published in 1988 (1). It is time for an update because • many new terms have arisen or, in some cases, their original meanings have expanded or changed; • the various techniques of capillary electrophoresis (CE) have become well developed and are used in many laboratories throughout the world; and • the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) published its massive undertaking titled “Nomenclature for Chromatography,” which provides guidance and changes in some of the more commonly accepted terms (2).

Also available as a searchable flip-book image of original (choose "read online" in list of other formats). Just like having the book on your desk, without the dust.

"In early 2002 Infotech Consultant Services emerged as the first domestic chemical solution provider in relation to Oil & Gas and Petrochemical industry in Malaysia, where the market product was dominated by oversea companies. We had successully demonstrated to our clients the capacities of our propietary chemicals to compete head-on with oversea products at a very competitive cost, proving significant contribution to the success of Petronas Penapisan (Melaka) Sdn Bhd 3rd phase plant turnaround for Plant Hydrocarbon & Sludge Decontamination in year 2004. In the same year, the company was changed to a Limited Liability company - InfoBioTech Resources Sdn Bhd. The purpose of the company is to provide decontamination, chemical cleaning and specialized propietary chemicals to support the Oil& Gas and Petrochemical industry. The same chemical does not necesserily solve the same problem from different plant due to the unique crude characteristic the plant is handling. Over the years, IBT has attained an excellent reputation for innovating and customizing our products to meet the stringent needs of our client."

(EN) (PDF) - Illustrated Horological Glossary | nawcc-index.net

"The following pages are by no means an unabridged horological glossary, which could fill volumes. It is rather an easy reference guide for new watch enthusiasts, a helping hand as it were. The next 30 pages contain some of the more common vernacular used within the pages of our catalogues as well as approximately 350 illustrations. As we are firm believers in the old adage “A little knowledge is a dangerous thing”, we are currently working on a constantly evolving horological lexicon and database which will be available at www.antiquorum.com. We will be keeping you abreast of further developments on this project in future issues of the Vox magazine. Until then, we hope the following will be useful to those of you who have just joined us in the world of horology."
