About Arqus Termbase

Online terminological database for terms in Higher Education

Work Package 4.9 and Task 11.4| Coord. by the University of Granada

As recognised by all major international organisations and networks, terminological consistency is the basis for strong and efficient communication. Based on the state-of-the-art bilingual terminology management tool UGRTerm, developed by terminologists and language policy and internationalisation experts at the University of Granada (https://ugrterm.ugr.es/about-ugrterm/), Arqus Work Package 4.9 examined the feasibility of upscaling the content and functionality of the database to include the Arqus partners’ languages.

The expected output included the analysis of existing terminological resources at each partner institution and a feasibility study on the upscaling of UGRTerm, which studied the interoperability of the data. Thereafter, a Work Plan was laid out for the gradual development of specific terminology collections in the partners’ languages. Finally, by 2025, a fully multilingual termbase containing the compiled terms will be available.

Deliverables from WP 4.9 and Task 11.4 will be disseminated through the Arqus Termbase Portal as will terminology collections produced by the 4.9 and 11.4 work team or in collaboration with other Arqus action lines. Glossaries will be updated on a regular basis. In addition, publicly available terminology resources related to higher education at the partner institutions will be listed.
