At the Lab we organise workshops for companies, translation agencies and local enterprises aimed to:

  • introduce staff and employees to existing commercial and open-source software that will optimise their daily tasks related to the provision of language services (e.g. OmegaT, Wordfast, Alfresco)
  • train employees on customised tools and programmes implemented by our Lab staff within ad-hoc projects
  • enhance communication skills (in Italian or a foreign language) in a professional field of interest through LSP (Language for Specific Purposes) teaching
  • provide translators with strategies and resources for managing projects successfully

We also run in-house training programmes addressed to and customised for your in-house team. In-house training, also carried out within dissertation-based placements (tirocini avanzati), has proved successful with employees, who are very keen to learn once they appreciate the potential of new technologies.

We are open to suggestions on topics for training programmes in fields including (but by no means limited to) foreign languages, translation, terminology, language mediation and intercultural communication.

If you have queries or suggestions, we’d love to hear from you!
