(EN) – Rubber Manufacturing Words and Terminology | Martin’s Rubber


Over the last 150 years or so, the rubber industry has developed many words and terms that are unique to it, and our Rubber Glossary is intended to help clarify what is meant by these words.

The longevity of the industry means that some terms are rarely used these days, or have become associated with the more recent development of thermoplastic materials rather than the traditional thermoset rubbers that were discovered in the 1840’s, giving rise to the industry we have today. In our “A-Z “rubber glossary we have covered this crossover of materials, as well as looking at terms commonly used in the applications where rubber is a key constituent, such as sealing and hydraulics.
If the term you are seeking does not appear in this rubber glossary list, please contact our Technical Team, who will be pleased to help you.

(MULTI) – Search on the EU legal corpus | Juremy


Translation of legal text needs expertise in both law and translation to preserve the precise semantics. Apart from having to follow a generic style guide, there are additional aspects of translating the European Union’s legislative documents.

First, for the sake of consistency, former precedent for translating a phrase must be followed. Although room for subjective phrasing in legal texts is already reduced, this criteria further restricts the translator’s freedom. In exchange, the legislative documents have high coherency. It is the translator’s task to diligently track down and annotate prior art of suspected phrases.

Generally, a well-researched and annotated output is likely to have higher quality. This is important from a business point as well. Missing prior art, apart from the lost chance of sparing translation effort, may lead to worse quality ranking, and on the long term losing tenders.

To apply due diligence, translators annotate matched phrases with a match reference, most often the document’s Celex number. The go-to service for looking up matches so far is Eur-Lex. But the Eur-Lex interface was not designed for the translation use-case, rather topic research. For a term query, the user is presented with a list of documents. Manually opening these documents and again searching for the terms is a tedious task, which could easily take 10 minutes per query.

Juremy improves the quality of legal translation by providing fast and accurate search on the EU legal corpus. This incentivizes translators to perform more lookups, leading to improved document quality with less time and effort spent.

(MULTI) (PDF) – Testing Treatments | NHS



One reviewer of Testing Treatments rated this little book written for the public as “important, scary and encouraging”.

It’s important because people need to know why treatments must be tested carefully.

It’s scary, because the book provides plenty of examples of how people have suffered and sometimes died because treatments have not been tested rigorously.

And Testing Treatments is encouraging because it shows how everyone can play a part in promoting better research for better health care.

In his Foreword to the book, Ben Goldacre concludes that the tricks of the medical research trade are better explained in Testing Treatments than anywhere else he has encountered. You can listen to Ben reading his Foreword to the book here.

The original English text has been translated into many other languages; and new translations continue to be prepared, emphasizing the enduring relevance of a text first published in 2011.

The texts of the English original and all the translations are available for free download from language-specific websites. Some of the texts are also available as audiobooks, and each of the websites has links to other resources illustrating and reinforcing the lessons in Testing Treatments.

The authors and translators hope you enjoy this important multilingual learning resource, and that you will help to increase the likelihood that you and others will receive treatments that are more likely to do good than harm.
