This course is scheduled to take place from 7 to 18 September 1998 at the University of Pretoria. It is envisaged that intensive training in the compilation of bilingual dictionaries will be given during the first week (7 – 11 September 1998) by Sue Atkins and Michael Rundell. The second week (14 – 18 September 1998) will be dedicated to training in dictionary compilation in African languages.
