On the occasion of International Translation Day, the Department of Translation and Languages and the Library of Al Maaref University, in cooperation with Librairie du Liban Publishers (LDLP), announced making the “Muaajam” online platform available to both students and staff.
The event was held on Thursday, September 29, 2022, at the University Library, with the participation of LDLP’s head of the Dictionaries Department, Pr. Dr. George Abdel Masih, and the attendance of the students of the department and a number of professors.
MU purchased unlimited access to the platform, allowing its students to benefit from about 80 monolingual and bilingual dictionaries in light of the economic crisis and the high prices of books and paper dictionaries.
During the activity, Pr. Abdel Masih gave a speech about the role of terminology in translation and provided an overview of the platform.
