Terminology

Terminology

when localising software it is important to use the correct term consistently. With African languages often these terms are new, not widely used or disputed. This sub-project will create a 2 500 word ICT term list for use in localisation. It will also enhance terminology management software to make it easier to collaboratively produce terminology in any field.

The attached list is the 2500 IT/L10n terms that have been selected for the Terminology project. This is the simple version of the list, showing only the original English terms.

We will soon post another version of the list that shows all of the English data for the glossary, including definitions, comments, tags, and syntactic groups. Data for each project language will be posted when complete.
