Dictionary Jumpstart showcases learning opportunities

Dictionary Jumpstart has been helping reporters clean up their dictionaries and transition into different areas of reporting for 12 years. Now, Dictionary Jumpstart lets you earn PDCs with five of their eight modules, watch their webcast at to earn CEUs, and sign up to continue to round out your dictionary with their new monthly vocabulary updates.

Students usually start out with a basic dictionary that accompanies their theory. Dictionary Jumpstart is a fabulous way for students to truly customize their dictionaries, allowing them to achieve a high realtime translate rate right out of school.

Realtime is all about being prepared on the front end, thus minimizing work on the back end, i.e., editing! The way to achieve this is to improve your dictionary on a monthly basis. After all, your dictionary is the most important tool in your career. Make certain to maintain at least five backups at all times and store them in different places.
