Pauline Prince (Certified Terminologist) began her university career in biology and premed before turning to translation. After getting an undergraduate degree in translation, she earned a master's degree in applied linguistics, specializing in terminology. She has consistently striven to apply a scientific process to applied terminology.
A certified member of the Ordre des traducteurs, terminologues et interprètes agréés du Québec (OTTIAQ), Pauline has acquired more than 25 years of experience in translation and terminology. She was also very active in the terminology section (Secter) of the Société des traducteurs du Québec (STQ), which was the predecessor of the OTTIAQ. Pauline was both vice president and president of Secter. She has also served on a number of STQ and OTTIAQ, in addition to being on OTTIAQ's board.
Pauline has amassed a vast amount of recognized experience in terminology and related areas: term research, vocabulary research (development of lexicons, glossaries, and vocabularies), linguistic consultation, terminology database creation and updating, terminology and synonym studies, linguistic/terminological revision, lexicographic revision, linguistic advice, and information research.
Many public-sector organizations (Public Health Agency of Canada, Office québécois de la langue française, etc.), major utilities (Bell, Hydro-Québec), firms in the health-care sector, and professional bodies have called on Pauline's services.
Since 1985, Meditext has counted itself fortunate to be able to rely on her support, expertise, and experience. Pauline approaches her work with rigor, method, patience, and modesty. She wins the confidence of those around her through her strong listening ability and developed sense of research and analysis. Meditext is even more fortunate in that she communicates her passion for terminological research. Indeed, we are very pleased indeed to have sought out her advice and perspective.
Her strengths are intellectual curiosity, keen sense of research, meticulousness, versatility, and capacity to synthesize.
