YourTerm TECH

Get to the heart of the EU digital development


YourTerm TECH will provide terminology, as well as useful knowledge, in the complex IT and Social Media fields. Due to the ongoing technological development of our society,  this project will be a useful resource to promote consistency and correct use of new practices, tools and discoveries which need to be quickly named.

The importance of this project is that technology and social media are the key to keeping the European Institutions and to carrying out the work which affects the lives of millions of European citizens.

The TECH project covers the following sub-projects:

Smart Cities

A smart city is a technologically modern urban area that uses different types of electronic methods, voice activation methods and sensors to collect specific data. Information gained from that data are used to manage assets, resources and services efficiently; in return, that data is used to improve the operations across the city.

Audiovisual Terminology

This subproject will give you an insight on the wide audiovisual field, focusing in particular on filmaking, subtitling, dubbing and voiceover.

Digital Humanities (DH)

Digital humanities (DH) is an area of scholarly activity at the intersection of computing or digital technologies and the disciplines of the humanities. It includes the systematic use of digital resources in the humanities, as well as the analysis of their application.

Natural Language Processing (NLP)

Natural Language Processing is a field of Artificial Intelligence that enables computers to analyse and understand human language, both written and spoken, so that a user can have natural conversations with a computer.

Technical Communication

Technical communication is the process to design, create, develop and deliver technical information on products (technical systems, software, services) for their safe, efficient and effective use. This process encompasses not only the technical writing phase but also the specialized translation and localization of technical contents and documentation. Technical communicators are engaged with the difficult task of transferring the information in a clear, simple and consistent language. To this purpose, terminology plays a key role for technical communication. This sub-project aims at the description and analysis of the terminology used in the technical communication domain in order to provide a valuable support to the community involved in this process.
