LRC Best Thesis Award 2011, call for entries
Closing date for entries: 2nd of September 2011
The Localization Research Centre and Symantec Ireland are pleased to announce the 2011 LRC Best Thesis Award, also sponsored by Symantec.
The LRC Best Thesis Award is an annual award given to the author of the best research publication in an area relevant to internationalisation and localisation.
Students who have completed a thesis on a relevant localisation theme within the past two years are invited to submit their work to the LRC for consideration. Theses may be submitted prior to their degree award and will be judged by a panel of academic and industry experts.
The winner will receive €1,000 and one of Symantec’s professional retail products.
The scope of the entries for the award need not be confined to a technical linguistic area, and applications are also invited from students who are carrying out research into commercial and management aspects of the localisation industry.
Possible topics may include, but are not limited to …
- localisation workflows
- crowdsourcing in localisation
- global web design and content management
- machine translation
- computer-aided translation
- terminology management
- internationalisation and global software design
