A collection of interviews with prominent terminologists who talk about their activities, projects and opinions on interesting terminological issues. The objective of this initiative is to bring the terminology work in the spotlight and raise awareness about its importance in both monolingual and multilingual communication.
The Terminology Coordination Unit (TermCoord) of the Directorate-General for Translation of the European Parliament has created this booklet to present its activities to external parties, individuals and organisations that are active in a related field and wish to collaborate with us or simply want to find out more about the work we do.
On the occasion of the award of the Sakharov Prize on 14th December, during the EP’s plenary session, DG TRAD presented its publication of an indicative collection of terms belonging to the Human Rights domain for which the EP has a leading role in IATE. This booklet serves to demonstrate what kind of terms are included and how they are presented in IATE, each term having equivalents in all 23 official languages with their corresponding references and definitions. The goal of this action was to promote the importance of IATE and terminology resources, not only for translating, but also for drafting legislation in a multilingual environment.
