"[...] without terminology the science does not exist or the technique would not be described, neither is practiced a specialized profession."

Cabré, 1999


What is terminology? Is it a scientific discipline? In what contexts is terminology work carried out? Does terminology have its own theories or does it apply theoretical approaches from other disciplines? What terminological needs may arise? What kind of terminology problems can be encountered and how can they be solved? How can I manage a Terminology database? What are the differences between general and specialised neology? Our Online Terminology Program aims at answering these questions and many others. This Program is directed by Dr. M.Teresa Cabré and it's offered by the Institute for Applied Linguistics (IULA-Specific research center of Universitat Pompeu Fabra)
