16 Multilingual terminology projects

17 A DGT ENGLISH EXAMPLE A rare opportunity in a perfect world… Document from Member State (Romanian) Terminology – car parts Researched and collated; translation sent Terms further researched (concept and definition) Entered into IATE A rare opportunity in a perfect world… Document from Member State (Romanian) Terminology – car parts Researched and collated; translation sent Terms further researched (concept and definition) Entered into IATE

18 A DGT LATVIAN EXAMPLE UN-ECE Regulations Many new terms Terminology Coordination Unit conducts a survey > 10 concepts Language departments – Yes/no - Majority

19 COOPERATION WITH LATVIA State Language Centre identifies experts in Ministries (fast and successful) assists in harmonisation of terminology Continuing cooperation with experts (e.g. Fish, vehicles) Video conferences during translation process (longer documents, packages with long deadlines) Follow-on terminology projects (rare, due to administrative procedures) IATE – term entered, but with lower reliability for non-validated terms

20 COOPERATION WITH MEMBER STATES Visiting Translators' Scheme (VTS) Cooperation with Ministries and local institutions/agencies/bodies

21 SOME CONCERNS MS experts view terms in a local context (e.g. eradication) New terms Organic products Biological products Germinal products Bioloģiski Produkti Bioloģiski produkti Bioprodukti DGT translates documents for the EU umbrella terms

22 SOME CONCERNS FOR THE FUTURE Number of experts diminishing Age, experience and background International studies and experience, but less local in-depth linguistic knowledge Language trends Post-Soviet (e.g. Latvianisation of terms) Use of previously published documents Long document cycles
