By now all of you have most certainly downloaded the valuable DGT and IATE TMs, and started working with them. They definitely make our work a lot more fun, efficient and reliable!
In-house we have also been happily working with another extremely useful online corpus since 2008, before all these famous resources turned so popular among public users. I mean the JRC-Acquis Communautaire Corpus, which consists of a parallel corpus of the full text Eur-Lex documents. The advantage compared to the DGT TM is that in the Acquis each sentence is in its context, while in the TMs the sentences are isolated.
It includes all legislative corpora between 1950 and 2006 and can be downloaded here.
But that’s not all: you might as well come across another Acquis: the DGT-Acquis. The difference between this one and the one mentioned above is the time frame they cover: this one’s corpora start in 2004, so there might be some overlap until 2006. Download here.

A new calendar is now hanging on our wall. 2014 was rich in exciting projects and good prospects for the future. We have kept our loyal client portfolio, gained some new nice clients, updated valuable tools, streamlined a great deal of out terminology resources, and so many other interesting tasks. It was also the year where we finally harmonized our social media and started rationalizing our work practices with this blog.
For 2015, three major events are on our mind:
– TERMNET International Terminology Summer School,
– Possible certification as a ECQA Certified Terminology Manager,
– Translating Europe Forum, in Brussels,
… and everything else that might seem interesting to help us fulfill and keep our quality concept.
We would like to thank all our clients who believed in our approach so far. With our enthusiasm and dedication, we hope we keep deserving your preference in the times to come!
All the best for good health, success, safe trips and happy moments in 2015!
FELIZ ANO NOVO! HAPPY NEW YEAR! FROHES NEUES JAHR!
