How to use IATE database in TBX format with the help of XBench (in Italian) - Novità IATE | Tra di noi (by Stefano KaliFire)

How to use IATE database in TBX format with the help of XBench (in Italian) - Novità IATE | Tra di noi (by Stefano KaliFire) | language and technology | Scoop.it

"Interessanti novità dalla banca dati terminologica europea IATE (InterActive Terminology for Europe) che da alcune settimane ha messo a disposizione una versione scaricabile della sua vasta raccolta terminologica, fatta di oltre 8 milioni di termini nelle 24 lingue europee.

In questo articolo vedremo insieme come trasformare il materiale fornito da IATE in un semplice glossario bilingue (formato Excel o TXT “tab-delimited”) da importare successivamente nel nostro CAT preferito. Questo ci permetterà di accedere alla terminologia IATE anche senza una connessione internet.

Il file, che si può scaricare da questa pagina, è in ..."

The Multilingual Internet: Language, Culture, and Communication Online - TermCoord Terminology Coordination Unit | language and technology | Scoop.it

"Although English is the de facto lingua franca of the Internet, most Internet users are not native speakers of English. Two-thirds of the one billion users now online communicate in other languages, in non-native English, or both. Yet the English-based scholarly literature on computer-mediated communication does not reflect this."

Terminology Coordination of the European Parliament's curator insight, October 16, 5:35 AM

This book was published seven years ago, an eternity in internet-years. Its main point is still valid though. There still not enough attention for the multilingual, non-English parts if the web.

(MULTI) (€) - Bilingual extractions from IATE Termbase | Henk Sanderson

(MULTI) (€) - Bilingual extractions from IATE Termbase | Henk Sanderson | language and technology | Scoop.it

"Recently, IATE published a large database (2.2 GB) on its webpage (Download IATE Termbase) – with the intention to make their information accessible for users for their own purposes. Of course, most of the (prospective) users are translators, not linguists or terminologists, just because there are many more from the first category. However, when a translator wants to extract data from the database in order to integrate them in his own tools, he is met with a large number of problems.

Obviously, as the size of that database is so large, handling it is a daunting task.

Various attempts to attack this problem of size have been published, for instance, with the latest version of ..."
