Discover IATE the EU terminology database
IATE has been operational since the summer of 2004 with the aim of providing an internet-based service for sharing terminology between institutions. In 2007 a public version of the site was launched which enables all EU citizens to search for specific terminology in any of the official languages. The Internet version of IATE now receives over 70 million queries a year.
Both IATE sites have “help” sections should users encounter any difficulties whilst searching in IATE. Furthermore, there is also an Input Manual for those users who create and update entries.
