"IATE, the publicly accessible terminology database of the EU institutions, has undergone some improvements. IATE contains over 8 million terms in the 24 official languages of the EU and is constantly updated and maintained by the translators and terminologists of the EU. These improvements will make searching IATE easier and more informative for its millions of users all over the world.

The first two improvements can be found in the ..."

Eliana Lobo's insight:

I've relied on I.A.T.E.'s term base for many years. I enjoy being able to look up terminology specific to an industry or profession and FIND the equivalent when I visit there, no matter how specialized the term may be. I've found equivalents for terminology used in human resources, pedagogy, forestry, manufacturing, automotive, aeronautic, legal and medical professions.

 

If you speak one of the languages of the European Economic Community, I recommend this resource most highly.

interpreter's curator insight, August 15, 2015 3:08 PM
TED-Ed It’s obvious that knowing more than one language can make certain things easier — like traveling or watching movies without subtitles. But are there other advantages to having a bilingual (or multilingual) brain? Mia Nacamulli details the three types of bilingual brains and shows how knowing more than one language keeps your brain healthy, complex and actively engaged.
Julie Burns's curator insight, August 17, 2015 5:25 PM

Wow, I had no idea I was a "compound bilingual"! What kind of bilingual are you, and what does this mean for your brain?

(MULTI) - IATE Term of the Week: Ebola & Quarantine | TermCoord | Medical Interpreter Training | Scoop.it

"With the West African outbreak of Ebola, worries are that the virus might spread to other continents, which has prompted extraordinary precautions among the nations of the developed world. Doctors and medical staff who have travelled to West Africa to treat infected people have been urged to be sealed off from the public once they return to their home country. On this occasion, we decided to elaborate on two terms from IATE: Ebola and ‘Quarantine‘

The Oxford Dictionary defines quarantine as “a state, or place of isolation in which people or animals that have arrived from elsewhere or have been exposed to infectious or contagious disease are placed.” Ebola is characterised as “an infectious and generally fatal disease marked by fever and severe internal bleeding, spread through contact with infected body fluids by a ..."

(EN) - Glossary of Medical Devices and Procedures: Abbreviations, Acronyms, and Definitions | RadioGraphics

(EN) - Glossary of Medical Devices and Procedures: Abbreviations, Acronyms, and Definitions | RadioGraphics | Medical Interpreter Training | Scoop.it

"The abbreviations, acronyms, and words included in this glossary represent medical device and procedure terminology found in everyday practice. Also included are many colloquial terms and abbreviations frequently encountered on requisitions for radiologic services or in daily conversation. These terms were purposely included because they are often not defined in standard medical texts or dictionaries. The definitions presented herein are the authors’ own, but we believe they conform to general usage. Some meanings vary from locale to locale and from specialty to specialty. Often, terms now in general medical usage originated from the name of a manufacturer or inventor of a particular device. Over time, these terms have acquired a generic meaning of their own, now being applied to a class of devices with the original meaning lost. Examples of this phenomenon include the Jackson-Pratt drain, the Hickman catheter, the Broviac catheter, the Swan-Ganz catheter, the Dobbhoff tube, and the Kirschner wire.

It is surprising that many such terms are not defined or even listed in leading medical specialty textbooks. The package inserts supplied with devices frequently do not cite references that deal with the device’s origin, even when the device carries an inventor’s name. There has also been a recent pernicious increase in the nonstandardized use of common abbreviations in requests for radiologic procedures. Prime examples include the abbreviations ASD and USA. ASD used to mean “atrial septal defect.” Now, it sometimes means “airspace disease.” USA used to mean the United States of America, but some use it to mean “unstable angina.”

The definitions and terms included in this glossary are derived from the authors’ own experience, from discussions with many colleagues, and from information contained in many excellent medical terminology texts. This glossary is also an extension of glossaries found in Radiologic Guide to Medical Devices and Foreign Bodies (St Louis, Mo: Mosby–Year Book, 1994) and Medical Devices, Abbreviations, Acronyms and Eponyms: A Pocket Guide (St Louis, Mo: Mosby, 1994)."
