Terminology blogs

Can’t get enough of Terminology? Check out these award-winning blogs:

TermCoord. (Terminology Coordination of the European Parliament). The most comprehensive page, with blog included, where you will find a link to IATE, interviews, publications, traineeships, a neologism database, their cooperation with universities, etc. A first stop that shouldn’t be missed. 

Terminosophy by Besharat Fathi. Besharat focuses on terminology theory. “Presenting a panorama of terminology, demonstrating the relatedness of terminology to other domains of study, increasing the awareness about the role of terminology in our professional conversations and activities, presenting the modern trends in terminology, promoting the terminology knowledge with simplified yet precise terms.”

Terminologia etc. by Licia Corbolante is in Italian. It focuses on concept analysis and primary and secondary term formation, as well as cultural, language-specific and non-linguistic factors that can affect terminology work.

WordLo by Maria Pia Montoro. It contains posts on terminology, neologisms, buzzwords and updated information on terminology tools. 

Other (inactive or somewhat active):

TerminoTrad is Roger McKeon’s blog. Read more about TerminoTrad resources here.

BIK terminology is an inactive but extremely illustrative blog by Barbara Inge Karsch which lists quite a few terminology areas where you can read short texts about them, such as “Terminology 101” which includes a note on what terminology management is. “Terminology: An expert explains” in that same section is a funny 2-min. video on why terminology matters.

TermNet’s “Terminology Blog“: Also inactive (last update Oct 2013) but with lots of interesting information.

Terminology Forum: Terminology Forum is not a blog, but a global non-profit information forum for freely available terminological information online. The Forum, maintained by Anita Nuopponen with the help of her students at the Department of Communication Studies, University of Vaasa, Finland, provides information on terminological activities including terminology work, research and education, online glossaries and termbanks from different fields as well as on general language dictionaries in various languages.

Make sure you check out TermCoord’s list of terminology websites that includes, beside the ones mentioned above, TermWiki, TermCat, and Glossarissimo.

If you know of any other terminology blog, regardless of the language, let me know so that I can include it here.

  2. Excellent contribution, Roger! Thanks for sharing. I will add Terminotrad Blog and I will be testing Multifultor, sounds interesting. I will also add it to my tools.

  3. It’s interesting that I’ve managed to subscribe to both inactive blogs.

  4. Yes, maybe they want to leave the opportunity open to write again. I know that’s what I would do if I ever stopped writing in my blog for any reason. 🙂
