Meeting Description:

The Termisti research centre for applied linguistics (Higher Institute for
Translators and Interpreters, Haute École de Bruxelles) and Centrum voor
Vaktaal en Communicatie (Erasmus University College Brussels), are
pleased to invite you to their 4th joint seminar, held on Friday, April 29,
2011, on ISTI's premises. This year's seminar will address the topics of
'neology' and 'specialised translation'.
When working in a specialised field, translators are often confronted with
the problem of neology. They must relay a new lexical creation encountered
in the source language, which clearly reveals the appearance of a new
concept: translators therefore take part in 'secondary term formation' as
defined by Juan Sager (1990: 80ff.). In this context, they are required to
have skills that go beyond what is traditionally referred to as 'neological
competence', which all native speakers possess. More than often exposed
to a lack of reliable terminographic resources, translators must display
original qualities reinforced by an ad hoc training. In all cases, they must act
both as lexicologists and terminologists, with knowledge of semantics and
lexical morphology, they must be able to lead detailed investigations
involving field specialists, and they might have to resort to loanwords or
even original lexical creations in their native language.
This year's speakers will examine the links between neology andspecialised
translation, and attempt to provide an overview of the many new lines of
research in this area. For more information about the seminar, please visit
