Terminology accreditation involves the compilation of a mini bilingual, bi-directional technical dictionary in the subject field of candidates’ choice, e.g. natural sciences, biological sciences, human sciences, social sciences, commercial sciences, engineering, technology, sport and recreation. Documentation in the subject field will be provided and candidates will have to excerpt the terms from this. The mini dictionary should include appropriate front matter with indications on how the dictionary was compiled and problems encountered while compiling it, and also back matter (i.e. bibliography, names of subject specialists, linguists consulted, etc.). An indication of how the dictionary user should use the dictionary should also be given.
