FAO, as a multilingual organization dealing with hundreds of subjects, has created a TERM PORTAL to create, store, manage and maintain concepts, terms and definitions.
The idea is to offer a container or one-stop-portal for searching all systems and glossaries.
Technical Divisions often need to create glossaries specific to their fields of activity, in one or several languages as a mechanism to enhance exchange of information and facilitate communication. In order to ensure the harmonization of the linguistic information developed, its consistency and reliability, there is a need to coordinate, maintain and share the existing linguistic resources and foster the development of new ones.
Technical divisions wishing to develop glossaries and terminologies are encouraged to contact the Term Portal administrators at:
