As a member of the Advisory Board for the UW Extension Program in Localization and its lecturer on terminology management, I’d like to draw your attention to the upcoming registration period for the next academic year.
Since it is a short three-semester certificate, it only has a three-hour intro into terminology management. But when I left my job as English terminologist to go help out as German terminologist in the Microsoft office in Munich, a graduate from this program applied for and took over my position. She became a darn good terminologist who still takes care of Microsoft’s geopolitical terminology today.
Terminology aside for a moment, if your are looking for a certificate in localization and you can participate in person here in Seattle, check out the program. If you are looking for an online course, you are a good candidate, too; we worked with the virtual learning environment, Moodle, last semester, and while it doesn’t quite substitute for the fun that you can have in a class room, it is quite convenient to follow the course from your home office. For more details, please see the course website.
