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.
