Terminology resources for external translators

 

 

1Internal IATE

IATE (InterActive Terminology for Europe) pools the terminology resources of the EU institutions and bodies to form the world’s most extensive terminology database. It contains close to 12 million terms in all the EU official languages and covers all areas of EU policy. It is constantly expanded and updated by EU terminologists and translators. For non-EU officials a password is needed to access it (provided by ETU).

2Termfolders

They are created for particularly important – and linguistically or terminologically problematic – legislative procedures and packages. They contain a list of key terms on the topic of the procedure, extracted from relevant EP texts and other sources. The terms are prepared in IATE in all languages and the list of terms is posted on the TermCoord websites.
