"Termes d'astrofísica" by Jordi Miralda in UBTERM website


Date/Time: 03-06-2015/12:00

Place: Meeting Room DAM (7th floor, Physics Faculty)

UBTERM website has just incorporated "Termes d’astrofísica", a brief terminological compilation that offers solutions to denominate in Catalan some popular words in Astrophysics which are usually named in English. Some expressions are typically used in English instead of Catalan, either due to ignorance of its standard form in Catalan or just because it does not exist a satisfactory denomination reached by consensus.


The work has been developed by Jordi Miralda, Professor ICREA associated at Astronomy and Meteorology of the University of Barcelona. The online edition has been carried out by the UB Language Services.
