Hi all!

Im currently studying interpreting and I find it often quite hard to buil up my vocabulary for specilised topics in my none native language (spanish, english and french) like human rights, medicine or defense and internationl relations just to name a few. Does anybody know good and reliable webiste with glossary that I can consult or which one do you consult.

Thanks for your help

Glossaries vs terminology Sep 21, 2009

I think you're better off reading source language material (i.e. the press in your foreign languages) than trying to read through glossaries which are almost inevitably unreliable and behind the times.

If you need something for looking up terms you come across, look around. Sources vary depending on the field. If you want to interpret for the EU you might as well use EU sources: IATE, eurovoc, CPV, DGT-TM, europarl corpus, eur-lex.
