The new IATE is online. Take a look!

The new version of IATE has a completely renewed look and feel, a more intuitive user interaction and better structured data. Its accessibility has been enhanced (keyboard and screen reader support) and its design is now responsive so that it can be accesses by any device.
Search results are more accurate thanks to a detailed filtered search and a domain filtering. The display of the terminology entries has been improved, including the possibility to select a bilingual, trilingual, or the whole multilingual entry.

As a member of the R&D team of IATE, the European Union terminology database, I’m thrilled to announce the release of the new revamped version of the most popular terminology database😎

We have been working for more than two years at the Translation Centre for the Bodies of the European Union, with the support of the EU institutions, to provide a more functional, modern, user-friendly IATE.

The new IATE has been completely redeveloped with new technologies, a better architecture, a modern design and improved functionalities. 
The data search and indexing are built with Elasticsearch, which allows numerous adaptations because of its open source technology. 
The accuracy of the retrieved results has been increased, and the search has been extended to other fields apart from the term. 
The results page has been improved and offers many more metadata without having to access the full entry. 
The full view of the entries is much more modular, with a bilingual and trilingual view in columns or a multilingual view in the form of a list.
The new IATE offers general statistics in a very visual way, and a user manual with more detailed information than what was offered up to now. 
The new responsive version adapts to different devices (computer, tablet, mobile) and is made accessible for users with motor or visual disabilities (possibility of using the keyboard for navigation and screen readers). 
Finally, we provide a search API (Application Programming Interface) so that IATE can be easily queried from other platforms.

There is much more to come 😍

A second release with advanced data management features for EU terminologists and translatorsis scheduled for late January 2019.

Subsequent releases are planned for 2019 with many more features and improvements.

We have definitely worked hard to make the new IATE better, and we hope that you will enjoy using it and will help us with your suggestions to improve it even more in the future.

Differenza tra football e soccer

Perché il calcio viene chiamato in modo diverso da inglesi (football) e americani (soccer)?

I due termini, football e soccer, si usano per indicare lo stesso sport sebbene football sia presente in un maggior numero di lingue con un più alto numero di occorrenze.

Footballrisale a un decreto del 1424 in cui re Giacomo I di Scozia bandiva il gioco con la frase: "That na man play at the Fute-ball".

Nel 1863 viene fondata a Londra la Football Association (FA), la prima federazione calcistica nazionale che unificò definitivamente il regolamento. Queste regole furono adottate da tutti eccetto che dalla Scuola di Rugby, che preferiva un gioco più fisico in cui si potesse toccare il pallone anche con le mani. Si venne a creare cosi il termine soccer, entrato a far parte dello slang universitario comeabbreviazione colloquiale di Assoc., da  Association football+ la formazione agentiva "-er" per distinguerlo dal Rugby Football.

Football or soccer, which came first?

With the World Cup underway in Brazil, a lot of people are questioning if we should refer to the "global round-ball game" as "soccer" or "football"? This is visible from the queries of the readers that access my blog. The most visited post ever is indeed “Differenza tra football e soccer” and since we are in the World Cup craze I think this topic is worth a post.

According to a paper published in May by the University of Michigan and written by the sport economist Stefan Szymanski, "soccer" is a not a semantically bizarre American invention but a British import.

Soccer comes from "association football" and the term was used in the UK to distinguish it from rugby football. In countries with other forms of football (USA, Australia) soccer became more generic, basically a synonym for 'football' in the international sense, to distinguish it from their domestic game.

If the word "soccer" originated in England, why did it f…

You are doing terminology management all wrong. Here is why

We all know the never-ending, love-hate relationship between translators and terminology… now, let’s explore some of the most common errors.
Generally speaking, when thinking of terminology, we imagine a glossary, made of two parallel columns full of terms, with the source language on one side and the target language on the other.

Easy.

And what better than an Excel file for this type of structure? Seems easy and intuitive enough. Plus, you can also add an extra column to the right, to add comments or other notes.

Well, there’s something wrong here: Excel was never designed to store text, much less terminological data.

Yes, you guessed it… Excel was created to crunch numbers, not words!

Using Excel files is not an effective or efficient way to manage complex databases. If you use it to create glossaries as mentioned above, you will not be able to specify additional attributes for those terms. It is indeed possible to add extra columns but always limited to one field or category for ea…
