Term service

Finnish Terminology Centre TSK's term service is the only language service in Finland specialized in the terminology of special subject fields. The idea of the service is simply to provide the customers with answers to questions concerning specific terminology problems ("terms on demand"). Most often the problem originates in a translation task and concerns term equivalents, for example, in Finnish, Swedish, English or German. Other typical questions deal with definition problems, term recommendations and the spelling of complex Finnish terms.

When searching for answers the Terminology Centre uses the information provided by its own library as well as by electronic sources. The most typical users of the term service are LSP translators, information and documentation specialists, technical writers and secretaries both from public and private sectors.

The term service is provided by e-mail. The service is free of charge for the members of the Finnish Terminology Centre TSK. Other customers interested in the term service may contact the service for pricing.
