Introduction to the MultiTermTerminology Management System (TMS) and other management systems.  
Students will compile their own samples of a terminological glossary and/or continue to develop an existing multilingual termbase. Using various texts and corpora they will identify and classify potential specialized terms and process them terminographically. They will use available computer programs for terminology extraction and consult the existing terminological databanks.

Students will acquire sufficient theoretical knowledge to compile their own terminographical unit/entry samples and gain some hands-on experience of terminology management (subject to software availability). They will learn about the available terminological resources and terminological management systems.

Quality check and success of the course: Quality check and success of the course will be done by combining internal and external evaluation. Internal evaluation will be done by teachers and students using survey method at the end of semester.
