Terminology projects


(project chart)The Finnish Terminology Centre TSK's participation in different types of terminology projects varies from giving advice or comments to being totally responsible for the management of large vocabulary projects. The trend has been towards more and more terminologist-centered working methods, which usually gives the Terminology Centre a very active role in the projects.



All legally competent corporations as well as private persons can become members of the Finnish Terminology Centre TSK if they wish to support and develop the Terminology Centre's activities, need its services or are interested in terminology work and its results.

Benefits for members include many of the Terminology Centre's services, for example training and consultation, at reduced prices. In addition the corporation members get a certain amount of term service free of charge each year.

The Finnish Terminology Centre TSK


The Finnish Terminology Centre TSK (Sanastokeskus TSK ry) offers information and expert services related to terminology work and usage of special language terms. The Terminology Centre's activities are grounded in thorough mastery and development of the theory of terminology and the practical methods derived from it.

TEPA term bank renewed


The TEPA term bank is compiled and maintained by the Finnish Terminology Centre TSK, and it contains terms and definitions on special fields. The Terminology Centre's own material forms the base of the term bank, but it also contains other terminologies compiled by experts. The TEPA has been available to the public since 1987. In 1997 it was made available free-of-charge on the Web. Last year almost 650,000 searches were made in the TEPA.
