Application of Online Language Resources

Application of Online Language Resources

In the operations of any company, oral and written communications are an essential element that defines the company’s external image and determines its relationship with customers, suppliers and the rest of the business sector. Ensuring linguistic quality in all business activities enhances the company’s public image and provides it with added value. The inclusion of Catalan, besides being a matter of social responsibility, makes it closer to the territory. Nowadays, the Internet provides everyone with a large number of resources that can help solve linguistic doubts and improve texts. The practical application of online language resources are face-to-face sessions, based on practical case studies. During the sessions, students learn how to use and apply some of the tools and resources available on the Internet, which enables them to incorporate Catalan into a business’s written and oral communications.
