Abstract

The paper starts by emphasizing the importance of terminology work for translators. Following this, one possible method for researching specialist vocabulary, based on the author’s research, is presented. Points such as gaining background knowledge, selecting documentation, ‘scanning’ through selected texts, matching terms across languages and storing terms are addressed.
