UN Terminology


United Nations Multilingual Terminology Database

http://unterm.un.org/

UNTERM is a multilingual terminology database which provides United Nations nomenclature and special terms in all six official UN languages - English, French, Spanish, Russian, Chinese and Arabic. The database is mainly intended for use by the language and editorial staff of the United Nations to ensure consistent translation of common terms and phrases used within the Organization. UNTERM is maintained by the terminology team of the Terminology and Reference Section, Documentation Division, DGACM. Technical support is provided by IMTU/OUSG/DGACM and ITSD/CSS/DM.


DETERM: United Nations Terminology in German with English, French and Spanish equivalents
(Database of the German Translation Section)
http://unhq-appspub-01.un.org/dgaacs/gts_term.nsf

DETERM is an extract of the terminology database originally developed for internal purposes by the German Translation Section (GTS) of the United Nations Secretariat, New York. Data were exported from the internal database, in the Trados/MultiTerm format, and converted into a Lotus Notes/Domino format with the help of a specifically designed conversion program. DETERM was made publicly accessible in March 2002; as of April 2009, it contains approximately 10,000 records. The database is continuously updated and expanded.
