Hello, I need some help for my degree thesis on terminology for translators.

Do you know any bi- ormultilingual term banks where it comes out the presence of culture-specific terms, in other words where it comes out the terminologist's effort to manage cultural differences in proposing the translation of a specific term into another language?

Thank you so much for your attention.

Best regards

Elisa Baldoni

Maybe it is too technical, but you can try IATE,
www.iate.europa.eu.

Best regards,

perhaps an example could clarify this? Oct 26, 2010

maybe you are looking for iate.europe.eu
or simply any encyclopedia? (wikipedia),...

Or are you looking for what the Dutch words of "Gezelligheid" and "dropjes" mean?
(or HEMA-worst for that matter)

Thanks for your quick response. I'm looking for multilingual terminological databases where it comes out the 'cultural difference' within the camp 'terminological equivalence' (between for example en-ita or de-ita). Sure I need term banks referring to specialized languages caracterized by many culture-bound terms such as these of legal sector where often there is no conceptual equivalence in translation...
