New Terminology without Borders Projects Launched

YourTerm Food&Envi feature

You may already know Terminology without Borders, a collaboration project between Parliament’s Terminology Coordination Unit (TermCoord) and universities, EU/UN agencies and international civil society organisations. The aim is to provide terminology resources that meet a range of day-to-day needs of the citizens.

This collaboration reflects and supports DG TRAD’s goal of communicating with EU citizens in clear language. The main goal of the project is to enhance communication across a number of domains by tailoring terminology to people’s needs. This is achieved through several multilingual projects.

The projects contain a range of terminology resources for education, medicine, culture, women’s rights, and marine and fisheries. The terminology work is being carried out by university linguistic departments, as well as freelance terminologists and linguists. We welcome any suggestions for participants and collaborators. Everyone is invited to cooperate on this project and applications can be submitted online. All entries will be revised by experts from the participating international organisations.

In order to pursue further the goal of providing terminology on the widest range of subjects as possible, two new projects have just been created: YourTerm ENVI and YourTerm FOOD. ENVI is a project aiming at creating multilingual glossaries for the environmental field and promoting the harmonisation of environmental terminologies. YourTerm FOOD aims at promoting the high quality European food that is deeply linked to local traditions and cultures.

If you want to participate in any of these projects, please fill in the collaboration form available on University professors and individuals are welcome!
