A paper on the new version of the EU’s interinstitutional terminology database (IATE) has been published by John Benjamins Publishing Company in the journal Terminology. International Journal of Theoretical and Applied Issues in Specialized Communication, which is a reference in the field.

On 18 December 2019, CuriaTerm, the terminology database of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU), was successfully migrated into IATE. The Court worked closely with the Centre’s IATE Support & Development Team, led by Paula Zorrilla-Agut (IATE Tool Manager), on all of the technical aspects. Approximately 4 000 concepts and 60 000 terms from CuriaTerm are now available in IATE for internal and external users, including the national courts.
