Objectives and scope of Nordterm's work

The objective of Nordterm is to be a Nordic forum and network for terminology work. In order to achieve this, Nordterm will:

  • promote co-operation among the Nordic countries in the field of terminology through the exchange of information, experience and results, through joint projects, and by holding conferences and symposia,
  • ensure the influence and role of the Nordic countries in terminology development at an international level by co-ordinating efforts and developing joint guidelines,
  • to participate in terminology research, practical terminology work, terminological education and other activities related to terminology.

The most important of Nordterm's activities it the Nordterm Assembly which is organised every second year. The Nordterm Assembly is a forum which is open for all who are interested in terminology in the Nordic countries. In connection with the Nordterm Assembly a Nordic terminology conference is organised.

Nordterm participates actively in the standardization of terminology and many of Nordterm's member organisations are represented on the different levels in ISO/TC 37.
