Technical glossary of translation terms

Occasionally, you’ll come across some unfamiliar terms on the intercontact website or when talking to people in the localisation and translation industry. You’ll find many of these terms listed here with short explanations.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) of the European Union regulates the uniform handling of personal data. It stipulates regulations about the protection of personal data within the EU and, at the same time, issues guidance on the free movement of data.

In general, data protection is understood to mean protection against improper data processing in any form. Everyone has the right to decide for themselves what happens to their personal data.
