On the 5th and 6th November 2018, the School of Foreign Languages of the Slovenian Armed Forces, Ministry of Defence of the Republic of Slovenia, organised a Conference on Military Terminology in Ljubljana, inviting the European Parliament and NATO.
The EP was represented by the Director General of Translation, who presented the translation and terminology workflow in the EP, and by Darija Brinc and Rodolfo Maslias from TermCoord, who stressed the importance of terminology.
While the first day was dedicated to presentations and to an overview of what has been done and still needs to be done in the field of terminology in the Slovenian Armed Forces, the second day was more interactive, with TermCoord and the Terminology Standardisation Office of NATO running workshops with the large audience comprising of representatives of all services of the Slovenian Armed Forces.
Following on from the conference, TermCoord will launch in cooperation with NATO and the linguistic service of the Ministry (and possibly with the participation of Slovenian universities) a project for IATE on Military Terminology in English, French and Slovene that will be completed gradually, with the other EU languages serving as the foundation for university projects.
