I just discovered what appears to be a treasure trove of EU terminology. I haven\'t studied it yet, so I\'m a little uncertain how to classify it. Any suggestions would be appreciated.


Eurostat is one of the Directorates-General of the European Commission. Eurostat\'s mission is to provide the European Union with a high-quality statistical information service.


Eurostat gehört als eine der Generaldirektionen zur Europäische Kommission. Eurostat hat den Auftrag, der Europäischen Union einen qualitativ hochwertigen statistischen Informationsdienst bereitzustellen.


Eurostat fait partie de la Commission européenne, dont il est une des directions générales. Eurostat a pour mission de fournir à l\'Union européenne un service d\'information statistique de qualité.

The proof of the pudding is the eating Apr 8, 2003

Looked indeed like a hell of a discovery and a great site until I made one small test, based on the word \"recycling\" which someone had asked about either today or yesterday. I do not know which answer was given to that question, but I was expecting to find a good German word like \"Wiedergebrauch\". Instead I find a good old acquaintance: \"recycling (von Abfällen)\". Am I missing something?

'Recycling' (eng) is 'Recycling' (deu) Apr 8, 2003

Thanks Kim for a super find!


Dear \'e-rich\',


You said:

\"I was expecting to find a good German word like \"Wiedergebrauch\". Instead I find a good old acquaintance: \"recycling (von Abfällen)\". Am I missing something?\"


IMHO, Yes. During my 13 years in Germany I never heard anything else but \'Recycling\'.

There are other funny imports:

\"Last but not least\" \"die Queen\", French \"le meeting\", \"le parking\" etc.
