(EN) - Olive Oil Glossary | International Olive Council

(EN) - Olive Oil Glossary | International Olive Council | CPD for translators | Scoop.it

"The pace of change in the olive industry in recent years prompted the IOC to bring out this glossary to clarify the proliferation of ambivalent, ambiguous terms and definitions in the olive world. A source of uniform multilingual terminology was needed to make it easier for people inside and outside the industry to communicate with each other. 

The aim is to help users to find the meanings of the key terms used most frequently in the five official languages of the IOC (Arabic, English, French, Italian and Spanish).
Ranging over olive oil technology and table olive processing, agronomy, olive oil chemistry and organoleptic assessment, the words and their definitions are the end result of a lengthy, painstaking process of selection and discussion in which the emphasis has been on clarity and precision.
To compile the glossary, the IOC Executive Secretariat was assisted by a team of internationally renowned experts. Without their help, it would have been impossible to achieve the aim of this publication."

(MULTI) Hints and Links for Medical Translators by Palma Chatonnet-Marton

(MULTI) Hints and Links for Medical Translators by Palma Chatonnet-Marton | CPD for translators | Scoop.it
Objective This small compilation aims to help translators quickly find information on nomenclature and abbreviations from reliable sources in order to better adapt themselves to the market. In nature, the specialization of a species is detrimental to its long-term adaptation to an ever-changing environment. Does translators’ survival follow the theory of natural selection? Specialization seems a must and clients require that translators strictly follow the jargon used by the professionals who will use the target documents. However, this does not mean that translators cannot adapt to the evolution of the field. Contrary to biological evolution, where both specialist and generalist species co-exist in a dynamic equilibrium to share niches, the struggle for life of translators is more efficient when they are specialized but have tools and information to adapt themselves to the large variety of needs of clients. Nevertheless, this adaptation raises myriad questions for a translator: where do I find information quickly? Can I rely on the source? Shall I be able to explain my choices to the clients? Furthermore, even for a professionally trained translator, if the time spent on foraging for nomenclature, abbreviation and jargon is wasted at the expense of time necessary for ensuring proper linguistic quality, then fluency and clarity of translation can be jeopardized. .
