Much more context to be taken into account!

Eliana Lobo's curator insight, July 8, 2014 8:21 PM

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.
