IATE, the EU’s interinstitutional terminology database was developed in the early 2000s.

The database is managed by the IATE Management Group with representatives from the following institutions:

– The European Parliament
– The European Commission
– The Council of the European Union
– The European Court of Justice
– The European Court of Auditors
– The European Economic and Social Committee
– The Committee of the Regions
– The Translation Centre for the Bodies of the European Union
– The European Central Bank and the European Investment Bank

The IATE Management Group meets several times a year; in these meetings the European Parliament is represented by TermCoord.Despite its continuous development and maintenance ever since, due to technological evolution and changes in institutional terminology work, the need for a new, upgraded IATE has become clear.
