What is your background that brought you to this point?
In 2016, I received a PhD in Applied Linguistics from Liepaja University and Ventspils University of Applied Sciences (VUAS). Since February 2017, I have been a researcher at the Faculty of Translation Studies of VUAS, and my research interests are focused on principles and methods of developing special domain dictionaries. My research topics are related to lexicography and special terminology, especially botanical and legal terms, and the analysis of the methods of compiling dictionaries and practical lexicography. I am also teaching German as a Second Foreign Language, Terminology and Contract Translation Classes in the Bachelor Programme. I believe that practical lexicographic solutions can greatly improve the work of translators.
