Hello,
does anyone know if there is any publicly available MTerm base available listing the translation of country names?

Not sure I have the right answer, but at least you can check their names here: http://publications.europa.eu/code/en/en-5000500.htm . By changing the language, you can find the list in other EU languages.

What I usually do: I add country names to Multiterm as I come across them in my translation.

That and so much more Feb 4, 2017

The shared terminology database of the European Union is available freely - when I don't have a personal glossary for a given client, I default to it as it encompasses a vast multitude of fields (in European French, not Canadian French unfortunately, but it's still a great help).

You can find the glossary to download here : http://iate.europa.eu/tbxPageDownload.do then follow the instructions to grab the necessary language pair

Cheers!
