Terminology readings

What is terminology?

Well, if you still have doubts you can take a look at this article in English and this other in Spanish where you can find a very useful definition of terminology: the «set of designations belonging to one special language». [ISO 1087:2000]. And it is important because a careful defined terminology enables people in a particular industry to communicate clearly. A common understanding of terms allows people to communicate ideas more rapidly with less need for lengthy explanations.

How can we help you?

The following selection of books is our proposal for Terminology readings where you can find and consult useful material related to this area. You can also find the two booklets that TermCoord has been preparing with all the interviews to prominent terminologists.
