Terms collected when translating documents for the Forum

The purpose is to build up a thesaurus of :
- concepts or expressions that are difficult to translate from one language to another
- new terms in the vocabulary.

Result from a strong cooperation

This thesaurus is the result of a strong cooperation between the Forum and the master students of Esit. The collections you will find below were written based on a precise enumeration of the difficulties translators met when they translated documents from workshops of the second biennial meeting of 2007.

In each collection, you will find the original word or phrase and its translation in French, English or Chinese; a statement - attested / proposed / estimated - called transcription possible in the case of proper names, indicating the reliability of the translation scale from 1 to 3, indicating the area financial, technical … and the references of the source document.
