Resources for translation
Vocabulary glossaries are usually the resources that every professional translator uses. In them you can clarify the meaning of a large number of words and leave doubts when making a specialized translation. Some of the most useful are:
– Linguee It is a multilingual search engine of translations, with which through a word, its use can be consulted depending on different contexts.
-IATE. This is one of the most consulted glossaries of the European Union. You may have heard a professional translator talk about ‘Inter-active terminology for Europe’. In effect, it is this one. A basic linguistic reference
-Fundeu. When the translation is from another language into Spanish it is very likely that linguistic doubts will also arise. To clear them, resorting to the Fundeu or the RAE is extraimportant for any successful professional translator.
And as when a professional translator works on the computer and uses different browsers such as Firefox or Google Chrome, you should know that there are plugins that allow you to search for expressions in a host of dictionaries, such as MID (Mozilla Internet Dictionary), which It can also be customized; o Dynamic Language Tools, from Google Chrome, which allows, among other things, to search dictionaries in different languages.
