On the occasion of the award of the Sakharov Prize on 14th December 2011, during the EP’s plenary session, DG TRAD presented its publication of an indicative collection of terms belonging to the Human Rights domain for which the EP has a leading role in IATE. This booklet serves to demonstrate what kind of terms are included and how they are presented in IATE, each term having equivalents in all 23 official languages with their corresponding references and definitions. The goal of this action was to promote the importance of IATE and terminology resources, not only for translating, but also for drafting legislation in a multilingual environment.
DG TRAD’s presence at this plenary session can be considered as a big success since it not only provoked the interest of its “clients” and other interlocutors but also raised the awareness for DG TRAD’s role in the intra- and interinstitutional legislative process.
