European Union Terminological Database Goes Public

IATE, the Inter-Active Terminology for Europe, is the terminology/translation database system used by the institutions of the European Union since 2004.

IATE incorporates many legacy databases, including the well-known multilingual EURODICAUTOM, the European Commission's terminology system dating back to the early 1970s.

Participating institutions in IATE include the European Commission, the EU Parliament, the European Council, the Court of Justice of the European Communities, the Court of Auditors, and various other specialized institutions (such as the European Central Bank).

Its 1,4 million multilingual entries are now available to the public. It is possible to restrict searches to the legal field by selecting "LAW" as a "domain" in the Optional criteria section of the search page. IATE contains material in 24 languages from Bulgarian to Swedish.
