Seminar description

The CPUT multilingual glossaries project (MLG), a collaboration between CIET and the Language Unit in Fundani CHED,  focuses on gathering and compiling subject-specific terminology with the aim of translating them from English to isiXhoza and Afrikaans in order to enhance teaching and learning through multilingualism. Additionally, the multilingual glossaries aim to contribute in the development of scientific terminologies in African languages for different study fields at CPUT.

This workshop will introduce the project, showcase how it is being used in certain departments and reflect on student feedback so far. Furthermore we will demonstrate the process that is adopted by CPUT (in collecting; translating and verifying difficult key concepts and terminologies in collaboration with lecturers and students), a demonstration of the online multilingual glossaries platform, and discuss opportunities for getting your subject involved in the growing CPUT online multilingual glossaries.
