From Europe to Mercosul

EuroTermBank

Still working hard to improve our terminology sources!

EuroTermBank (Beta release) has been added to Word as an add-in, so that we can access the search feature more easily from the editor. Like the two previously mentioned Terminotix and TranslatorTools toolbars, this one works in Word, which is obviously not so handy. Anyway, a great resource! Download here.

Since the demand for Brazilian Portuguese is growing, we also have to bear in mind that it is mandatory to consider terminology differences between European and Brazilian language usage. For this reason, we are also proud to announce that we have aligned and created a new database with the official terms of the Nomenclatura Comum do Mercosul. More than 7000 terms in PT-BR with their equivalents in EN. I am afraid there are no more languages available.

Some other new amazing supplements that we have included in our termbase portfolio: IPIN’s Naval, USCG’S Nautical, Automotive, official EU Harmonized Standards, Cinema, and counting!

One Apple a day…

We are definitely in the mood to organize all our sources of terminology. There is no gain in having amazing glossaries without being able to optimize their usage.

 That’s why we are dedicating some time to it, and today we have finally created a TM from the MAC OS X glossaries available on the  web. To retrieve the files, you will have to log in as a developer with your Apple ID.

It’s easy to download your language .dmg files into your disc. If you’re not a MAC user, the hard part can be to extract them: try peazip.com.

When you’re done, follow the instructions given by CATguru:

You might obviously also feel tempted to create a termbase out of the Excel version of the glossaries, but for some reason you’ll get an error message. I suppose this is caused by the symbols in some entries. Anyway, as far as I am concerned, to be able to interact in SDL Studio with an Apple TM will be an awesome improvement!
