Innovation, creativity, vision and, above all, determination and team spirit, all this is Terminology Coordination!
TermCoord is the Terminology Coordination Unit of the European Parliament. Its objective is to coordinate the terminology work in the translation units and to represent the European Parliament in the interinstitutional management of the EU terminology database IATE. The website termcoord.eu is the only public terminology website sharing EU terminology resources and enabling networking and cooperation in the field of terminology with international organizations, academy and industry.
Languages are constantly evolving. Though purists may shudder at what they see as the degradation of ‘correct’ language use, innovative and new ways of using grammar, syntax and vocabulary show a bill of good health for a language.
At the vocabulary level, we find neologisms. A neologism is a new word or expression: a newly coined term. New terms appear in order to put a name to a new reality; this is why they are often linked to a specific period, event or person.
At TermCoord we are also on the look-out for new words that may be of importance to translators. Here we present a glossary of neologisms. You can also visit our section on useful links dealing with a variety of neologisms.
