Interview with Miguel Sánchez Ibáñez - TermCoord Terminology Coordination Unit

Interview with Miguel Sánchez Ibáñez - TermCoord Terminology Coordination Unit | Terminology | Scoop.it

Interview with Miguel Sánchez Ibáñez (by Marina Gutiérrez): "Miguel Sánchez Ibáñez is a lecturer and researcher at the Spanish university UCAM (Universidad Católica San Antonio de Murcia). He holds a degree in translation and interpreting from the University of Salamanca (Spain). He also has a PhD in translation and intercultural mediation from the same university".

YourTerm's insight:

During his student time, he decided to make terminology one of the pillars of his career, as it provided him tools and skills about his role as a translator and interpreter.  Now, as a lecturer and researcher at the Spanish university UCAM, Miguel Sánchez Ibáñez is a young terminologist with the challenge of making terminology classes appealing for students and succeeding in the goal of getting translators interested in Terminology. With a focus on the Spanish language’s terminological dependency on English for vocabulary relating to Alzheimer’s disease, this lover of language and words reclaims the creation of a central institution to regulate Spanish terminology and support the work of professionals in this field.
