I am a corpus linguist and a translation scholar. I am head of the EUMultiLingua research group and head of Corpus Research Centre. I am an editor of the Journal of Specialised Translation. My research focuses on legal/EU translation, legal terminology, translator training, corpus linguistics and technologies. Currently, I study Eurolects as hybrid varieties of national legal languages.
