The LabTerm and the world of work: a brief history

Since the very beginning of our activities in 1996, with the project Linguaggi e Attività Produttive, we have always sought chances to cooperate with the world of work. Agreements  and partnerships have been established with translation agencies, associations, public bodies and companies located throughout Italy and in particular in the Emilia-Romagna region (e.g. ApriliaFerragamoFerrariLuxottica).

At first, the LabTerm was a small room with half a dozen computers. Today, it is equipped with 35 workstations, plus a 12-station self-access ICT lab, but our vision hasn’t changed. Thanks to the newly launched Language Toolkit scheme (a joint initiative with the Forlì-Cesena Chamber of Commerce), our students have the opportunity to undertake internships through which they work towards their Master’s dissertations and at the same time provide language services to local enterprises.
