IATE is a living database, i.e. translators and terminologists are continuously updating its content. Using the IATE search interface (https://iate.europa.eu/) or the IATE search APIs thus ensures that you are accessing the most complete and up-to-date data. However, if you have a specific need, e.g. you are conducting linguistic research, you can also select and download a subset of the data contained in IATE.
Data can be downloaded in TBX (TermBase eXchange, ISO 30042:2019) or CSV format and the following filtering criteria are available:
- language code (one or several EU languages)
- domain (one or several domains, with its subdomains)
- collections (one or several collections, users can search by keyword, institution and creation date range)
- term type (term, abbreviation, short form, phrase, formula, lookup)
- evaluation (preferred, admitted, obsolete, deprecated, proposed)
- reliability (1 to 4 stars)
No specific sorting of entries is applied in the downloaded datasets.
The requested datasets are available for download 7 days.
For information on the data structure and the data categories included in the download file, please see: IATE data fields explained
