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.



The activities of the Finnish Terminology Centre TSK are based on the theory of terminology and on international terminology standards. With concept analysis at the heart of its services, the Terminology Centre serves a wide range of clients, offering them both terminology and ontology work and providing them with support related to classification and concept modelling tasks. In addition, the Terminology Centre offers other terminology expert services.
