An empirical investigation of the terminology profession in Canada in the 21st century
This article contains an investigation into the terminology profession in Canada in the 21st century. Terminologists themselves have their own opinion about the state of the profession, but the aim of this study is to investigate terminology from the perspective of those who employ terminologists by analyzing a corpus of job advertisements for a variety of terminology- and translation-related positions that were collected between January 2000 and June 2002. Spurred on by the effects of globalization, the language industry, including terminology, is in a period of change. Based on empirical evidence collected from the corpus, this article attempts to evaluate the current state of the profession in Canada and to determine what employers are looking for.
