"Created by the Great Schools Partnership, the GLOSSARY OF EDUCATION REFORM is a comprehensive online resource that describes widely used school-improvement terms, concepts, and strategies for journalists, parents, and community members.
The Glossary of Education Reform was created to help journalists, parents, and community members—anyone with an interest or investment in our public schools—understand some of the major reform concepts being discussed by educators, researchers, and policy makers. In a word, we believe that strong schools, great journalism, and an informed electorate are essential to any well-functioning democracy. For this reason, educators are encouraged to use the glossary to help build a stronger understanding of school-improvement strategies in their communities.The glossary describes widely used school-improvement terms, concepts, and strategies. It currently features 475 terms and 140 in-depth entries on K–12 public education and education reform in the United States. Each entry includes a general definition of the term, a discussion about how the concept or strategy intersects with efforts to improve school performance or student achievement, and an overview of related debates, including the major arguments for or against particular reforms. The glossary is designed to be a neutral observer, and the writers and editors worked to create entries that are factual, objective, and impartial."
"The whole field of fisheries is so beset with jargon and acronmyns that for anyone wishing to understand the issue, it can be a nightmare. Add to that increasing calls to protect marine wildlife, which has led to new terminology, particularly relating to the Habitats and Species Directive. At a time when the European Commission is pushing for consideration of the environment alongside all activities (through a process called integration), it is important to ensure that all those involved with fisheries and the environment have a common understanding of terms. This is why this glossary of terms for marine nature conservation and fisheries was commissioned. There has been wide consultation with a cross section of individuals over the definition of terms, which in itself helped increase common understanding. It is of paramount importance that integration of fisheries and the environment occurs in practice, at the grass roots level and not just in principle. We hope that this glossary will help to achieve such an aim.
A number of communications from the European Union stress the importance of disseminating scientific information in a way that is easily understood. The EC Biodiversity Strategy [COM(1998)42] calls on the Community to develop programmes for public information, education and awareness raising on conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity. This should also apply to the Commission’s action plan for biodiversity in fisheries. A similar commitment applies in relation to information on the impact of fisheries on marine ecosystems. "

"The Automotive Dictionary is a specialised dictionary for the automotive sector. New terms are being coined in this sector all the time, and we are convinced of the need to compile and analyse them. That is why we brought together various companies in the sector (Batz, Cikautxo, Ekin, Elay, GKN and Maier) and with the help of the advisory service provided by terminology experts in the Elhuyar Language & Technology Unit we have produced this dictionary, in which we have gathered the terms we use in our everyday work, and which we are making available to the general public.
It is clear that globalisation is leading us to another business reality and that from one year to the next the number of companies immersed in internationalisation processes is on the increase. In this new reality, we companies find ourselves having to manage various languages, be it in work processes, in relations with clients and suppliers, in relations among workers or in resources and computing applications.
So, properly managing languages and setting up a language strategy at work is a key aspect for competitiveness, as it allows us to display greater proximity to the client. Bearing this aim in mind, there is no doubt that managing the terminology of our sector and our companies has been a very important step.
This dictionary seeks to gather the multilingual terminology of the automotive sector and thus meet the terminology needs of companies, professionals and experts in this field.
We have produced the Automotive Dictionary to be able to effectively meet the communication needs of automotive sector users. The dictionary has started off with 2,650 items used in the automotive sector in 6 languages (English, Basque, Spanish, French, German and Chinese). The items have been classified into the different areas of automotive engineering, in line with the classification proposed by the ACICAE (Automotive Cluster of the Basque Autonomous Community)."
