During the weekend of 27-28 March 2021, the Centre will take part in the ‘Relais pour la Vie’ relay run. Organised by the Luxembourg Cancer Foundation (Fondation Cancer), the event usually gathers thousands of participants who run together in support of those affected by cancer. This year, the Foundation has set up a new way of connecting people in support of cancer patients and research by bringing runners together online in the ‘Relais pour la Vie ensemble & connectés’.
Can terminology be a source of empowerment? How can we describe situations or phenomena without the right words? You could argue that if something cannot be named, it might as well not exist. Terminological resources such as the IATE terminology database and EIGE’s Gender Equality Glossary and Thesaurus can help individuals and groups find a voice in multiple languages.
The least we can all say about 2020 is that it was a year of adaptation, creativity and flexibility. And, despite the pandemic, the Translation Centre managed to operate as usual and deliver 635 269 translated pages to its clients. It also successfully implemented 98% of its far-reaching Transformation Plan 2019-2020.
As part of the Centre’s two-year transformation plan set in motion in 2019, our key objectives have been to analyse in depth the communication needs or specific multilingual projects of our clients in order to find the best and most cost-effective solutions for them while increasing the competitiveness of our services.
