What is a Glossary Translation Revision?
A glossary  is often defined as a “[…] list of terms or words found in or relating to a specific subject, text, or dialect, with explanations”. Within the field of translation, glossaries are extremely important because they ensure the correct use of terminology and help establish consistency, not only within the same document, but throughout all the documentation that a business wishes or needs to translate. They are usually composed of columns, one for each language, in which the terms of the source language – and contextual information – are indicated first, followed by the corresponding translation in the different target languages.
What Does It Involve?
Precisely because of the role a glossary plays, it is essential that it be complete and correct. The revision of a glossary consists, firstly, of checking and verifying the terms. Other relevant aspects include: the management of the terminology, verification of the context and scope, and, if necessary, the addition of information and comments relevant to the terms of the glossary. It is also important to verify that the glossary is consistent in its wording, so as to maintain cohesion and facilitate its use. All of these reason make a glossary translation revision essential.
