Terminology Forum

Welcome to Terminology Forum!

Terminology Forum is a global non-profit information forum for freely available terminological information online. The Forum was established in 1994 and is maintained by Anita Nuopponen with the help of her students at the Dept. of Communication Studies, University of Vaasa, Finland. You will find here information on activities including national and international terminology work and research as well as education, online glossaries and termbanks from different fields, general language dictionaries in various languages. There are also links and information on terminological publications and links to blogs related to terminology field. On terminology news and events you will find information in our Twitter feed.

Terminology Forum is being updated gradually after moving to this location during the spring 2020. A part of the links may still lead to the old website.

Note: COVID-19 clossaries and a blog posting on corona virus terms.

Comments and suggestions for new links are welcome!
