If you are interested in optimizing your use of termbases, participate in this survey. The survey is being conducted by Lynne Bowker, Elizabeth Marshman and Marta Gómez Palou, as part of Marta’s doctoral thesis research. Having done similar research at Microsoft with our database users, I find it very worthwhile. And by participating, you might just learn something about your own behavior.
In her invitation, Marta writes “[f]rom this research we wish to assess the user acceptance of a series of strategies that will help translators to optimize termbases integrated to translation environment systems (integrated termbases). The end result will be a series of best practices to guide translators on how to best design and build their integrated termbases.”
The survey does require your brain power—rather than the quick gut reaction that I recently asked you for). I hope you will still consider taking 20 minutes to work your way through it and share your preferences. Click on the link below to get started:<
