Short description of the Summit

The FedTerm terminology summit is about sharing, maintaining, and synchronizing high-quality terminology resources in Europe and beyond.

Correct, consistent and current terminological data are crucial in a multi-lingual European Union with its digital economy and many new challenges to cope with. Each country is creating and managing terminology in a different way, which is a barrier for sharing terminological data across member states and partnering countries.

The Federated eTranslation TermBank Network (FedTerm) is addressing this barrier. For the first time, terminology resources can be shared in a network that allows organizations and institutions throughout the EU member states – and beyond – to locally deploy individual nodes to the eTranslation TermBank, which is the central federated node.

The individual nodes will be linked to and regularly synchronize terminology changes with the central eTranslation TermBank. The central eTranslation TermBank in turn will be linked to ELRC-SHARE and regularly update terminological resources in ELRC-SHARE, thereby ensuring correctness of terminological data stored in the ELRC-SHARE and available to CEF eTranslation services.

The FedTerm summit is Pan-European, with a focus on terminology communities of the FedTerm partners, who will present and discuss the challenges, solutions and benefits they get from sharing terminology using the FedTerm nodes:

  • Stofnun Árna Magnússonar í íslenskum fræðum (SAM) in Iceland
  • Tilde in Latvia
  • Culture Information Systems Centre (KISC) in Latvia
  • University of Copenhagen (UCPH)
  • Institute of Lithuanian Language (LKI)
  • Institute of Estonian Language (EKI) IEL
  • Institute for Language and Folklore (ISOF) in Sweden
  • Swedish Institute for Standards (SIS)
  • Jožef Stefan Institute in Slovenia (JSI)
  • International Network for Terminology (TermNet)

Participation is free of charge – Registration is mandatory. Register here for online participation.
