Terminology as a subject for research has been around for centuries. Even terminology-related tasks have been carried out for many years. The profession of terminologist in the localization industry has been emerging and taken on a more distinct profile, as localization is maturing as an industry. This paper defines the profile of a terminologist in the localization industry. First, it sets important definitions, and then describes terminology work as an essential ingredient in the localization process, and conceptual analysis, in turn, as the essence of successful terminology work. It then gives examples of companies that employ terminologists and concludes by juxtaposing seemingly contradictory characteristics and skills of multilingual terminologists in localization settings.
