Short bio of Elena Chiocchetti
Elena Chiocchetti is a senior researcher at the Institute for Applied Linguistics at Eurac Research in Bolzano, Italy. She holds a degree in English and German Translation studies from the University of Trieste and a PhD from the University of Bologna. As things go in life, she thought she would hate the internship in legal terminology that she applied for during her university studies. She was proven totally wrong, as she ended up loving the job and wanting for more! She has been in terminology for over 20 years now. Her research interests and national as well as international publications include topics like comparative legal terminology, terminology standardisation, and terminology databases. She has also worked and published in the domain of specialised translation and multilingual business communication.
