First Time in Lebanon: Training Workshop for SDL Teachers

The Department of Translation and Languages at Al Maaref University organized a specialized training workshop for teachers, the first of its kind in Lebanon. The workshop aimed to familiarize translators with the features of the SDL Trados Studio 2019 program used in technical translation and SDL MultiTerm 2019.

The workshop, which took place at the Lancaster Hotel, lasted for three days, September 17-19, 2018. The training was given by Phil Elliott, a certified British SDL trainer who came to Lebanon specifically for this purpose.

It is worth mentioning that this workshop comes within the framework of the Translation and Language Department's plan to adopt the latest translation and languages technologies and programs, and integrate them into the curriculum. As well, it is expected to be part of scheme for continuous development of the course instructors' skills in the specialised area and to encourage joining networks and international partnerships specialized in translation technology.
