I'm a new eng/pt-br translator and I'm working with lots of IT texts.

It's usual for me to receive text with brand-new terminology and no previous reference about it on TMs nor on termbases.

My question is: how do you work with it? Is there any reference site besides IATE and Microsoft where we can find the most frequent terminology of the industry in non-English languages for certain brand new IT terms? IATE uses european portuguese, which helps me but not all the time.
