Defence Terminology

Launching of the joint terminology project between TermCoord and the Ministry of Defence of the Republic of Slovenia

Between 11 and 15 March 2019, three translators from the Ministry of Defence visited the Terminology Coordination Unit of the European Parliament in Luxembourg as part of the joint project on defence terminology. The project is the follow-up of the Military Terminology Conference held in November 2018 in Slovenia.

During their visit, Slovenian linguists acquainted themselves with translation and terminology processes and capabilities of the European Parliament and started to work on the processing of defence terminology to be inserted into the IATE termbase. The project includes collaboration with the NATO Terminology Office and their NATOTerm base and will later on be upgraded to include cooperation with the University of Ljubljana. Initially, the terms will be inserted in English, French and Slovene and, in the next phase, gradually translated into all 24 EU languages.
