Humanterm – Multilingual glossary for the humanitarian field

I am sharing with you this multilingual (five languages) terminological resource. I was captivated by this quote on their page: “Language is not an abstract construction of the learned, or of dictionary makers, but is something arising out of the work, needs, ties, joys, affections, tastes, of long generations of humanity, and has its bases broad and low, close to the ground”. Noah Webster (1758-1843).

Humanterm is an R&D Project funded by the Universidad Europea de Madrid for a year with the aim of creating a terminological multilingual glossary for translators working in the humanitarian field. More specifically, Humanterm concentrates in:
• Compiling documents for term identification and extraction
• Uploading these terms into a collaborative platform that allows for public access and collaboration.
