Research grant awarded to an LVTC member

Carla Bouzada Jabois has obtained a two-year grant to carry out research on scientific and technical terminology in Galician language, joining the Servizo de Terminoloxía Galega (TERMIGAL).

TERMIGAL is a public service aimed at coordinating the terminological projects in Galician, providing technical support to the different departments of the Galician government (Xunta de Galicia) and to the general public (translators, companies, etc.), and supporting the development of technical and scientific materials and resources. TERMIGAL was created in 1997 after an agreement between the Real Academia Galega and the Dirección Xeral de Política Lingüística, and it is hosted at the Centro Ramón Piñeiro para a Investigación en Humanidades, in Santiago de Compostela. As a long-term project, TERMIGAL maintains a database with scientific and technical terms in Galician and their equivalents in other European languages, including Catalan, English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish.
