TERMDAT

English Abstract: 

"TERMDAT is an extensive multilingual specialist dictionary, providing a versatile aid for communication, text composition and translation. The database is also a means for recording and making available Swiss legal and administrative terminology along with other terminology from the public sector. Terms are available in Switzerland’s four national languages – German, French, Italian and Romansh – and in English. (...) The terms are recorded in thematic glossaries compiled in collaboration with experts from the Federal Administration or from the private sector. TERMDAT is run by the Terminology Section of the Swiss Federal Chancellery. TERMDAT contains some 400,000 Swiss entries – either verified or being processed – produced by the Federal Administration and by the Cantons of Bern, Fribourg, Valais and Graubünden. The terms, abbreviations, titles of legislation, the names of Swiss and international authorities, institutions and organisations as well as other information held in the database originate primarily from federal legislation and pertain to a wide variety of fields (education, energy, finance, commerce, industry, culture, agriculture, defence, environment, transport, economics, etc)."
