In cooperation with the Terminology Coordination Unit of the European Parliament, as from 2013 the University of Luxembourg has added a new module on Terminology to their “Master in Learning and Communication in Multilingual and Multicultural Contexts“.

The module consists of an introduction to terminology management comprising 20 contact hours covering topics such as practical terminology management in a multilingual organisation like the EU, the role of terminology in the linguistic consistency of legislation in 24 languages valid in 28 countries, the administration by ten institutions of an interactive multilingual database containing around 11 million terms which is fed by hundreds of translators in all official languages.

Lectures are held by Rute Costa, professor of terminology at the University of Lisbon and  members and collaborators of TermCoord.  They focus on the multilingual legislative process in the EU, multilingualism as a cultural right (Rodolfo Maslias), legal terminology in a multilingual environment  (Violina Stamtcheva), the latest approaches to term mining and lexicography, adapted to the latest trends and the new globalised media reality (Maria-Pia Montoro), Terminology and Ontologies in the semantic web (Carolina Dunaevsky), a terminology project with hands-on exercises on a test template of the IATE database (Viola Pongracz) and an introduction to the use of terminology in the IT context with a special focus on SEO, Search Engine Optimization (Francesco Rossi).

The students have the possibility to undertake a one month internship in the Terminology Coordination Unit of the European Parliament, where they can practice the acquired knowledge by participating actively in terminology and communication work, together with the permanent staff and a team of highly skilled trainees.
