FAOTERM online with new look and features

26 May 2004 -- FAOTERM, a terminological database covering FAO's specialized subjects - agriculture, biology, forestry, fisheries, food security, statistics and nutrition – in a multilingual format, has been redesigned.

New features include a News section on the homepage, a dynamically-updated list of FAO glossaries, glossaries external to the Organization which are particularly useful to translators, meeting documents, and publications related to terminology such as the FAO house style.

The FAOTERM member nations search has also been modified to produce multilingual result pages. There is a link to all country flags as well as a dynamic world map which allows the user to pinpoint a country using the mouse and view related information such as official language and currency.
