Thirty years from its inception, FAOTERM is FAO's largest terminology database. It includes both technical terminology from all the FAO areas of activity and titles (Bodies), such as names of centres, banks, commissions, committees, slogans, etc. from FAO and other international organizations.

FAOTERM comprises approximately 70 000 records, 10000 of which are Bodies, as well as equivalents in all FAO languages, including some Italian and scientific names for taxonomies.

FAOTERM is maintained by terminologists and translators in the Language Branch (CSGL).
