Termbase to facilitate mobility in the Nordic countries

The Finnish Terminology Centre TSK participates in a Nordic project in which a glossary is compiled to facilitate moving from one Nordic country to another to study, work or live. Educational concepts are covered first. The central concepts of the educational systems in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden are studied and concept systems are made. Definitions are translated into the other languages of the glossary if a corresponding concept does not exist in these languages.

The project participants are the Nordic language councils the Árni Magnússon Institute for Icelandic Studies, Danish Language Council, Language Council of Norway and Language Council of Sweden and terminology centres DANTERMcentre, the Swedish Centre for Terminology TNC and the Finnish Terminology Centre TSK.

The glossary should be ready by the end of 2015. It will be published as an open-access term database.
