ENVI and FOOD are two of the ten domains in which Universities from all over the world can contribute in the framework of Terminology without Borders.

During the last months, we had the pleasure to cooperate with the University of Trieste, whose students, supervised by Professor Medina Monter José Francisco, enriched two of our already existing glossaries with equivalents in Spanish language.

YourTerm ENVI

YourTermENVI aims at creating multilingual glossaries in the field of environment and conservation.

Conservation of the global environment is one of the major issues at stake to define the future of contemporary societies: committing to a more sustainable and fair development is surely the key for the protection of all ecosystems.

The first group of students worked on the Climate change glossary. It includes terminology from a variety of disciplines and research fields, ranging from science and biology to communication, health, and social studies.

YouTerm FOOD

YourTerm FOOD is a terminology project aiming at creating multilingual glossaries about the food industry and gastronomy fields and promoting gastronomy as an essential part of our European heritage and education.

European food is deeply linked to local traditions and different landscapes. That’s why it is essential to raise the awareness and knowledge of citizens on food in the European Union, which also attracts interest on an international level.

The second group of students focused on the Food safety glossary. Food Safety is one of the main topics at stake, which is strictly connected with health. This sub-project describes how food safety policies are implemented, and what are the effective control systems and the compliance with EU standards.

Everyone can participate in Terminology without Borders and make their contribution to the project! You only have to fill our form for a collaboration request here!
