This is a report on how we elaborated a termbase for a TerminologyManagement module at Swansea University. The first step we took was to read the book tilted:
Terminology: Theory,methods and applications,
by María Teresa Cabré. The book was extremelyhelpful, as it explained how to build up a professional termbase step by step.Apart from this, we also made use of the PowerPoint presentations we weregiven in the module.We were requested to develop two monolingual termbases (one in Englishand the other one in Spanish), along with a correspondence record for theterms. The main problem we had to face was the departure of one of the members of the group, what meant that only two people were making all the work.Luckily, we were told that due to these special circumstances, we did notneed to use as many terms as the other groups when making the termbase.What we first did was choosing the domain we were going to work on. Aftersome discussion and proposals, we eventually choose the Vestibular systemas our research domain.
