FAO Terminology Portal


WFPTERM provides terminology support in Arabic, English, French and Spanish for internal and external translators, editors and proofreaders working for WFP, along with other staff members. It contains the latest version of the WFP Glossary, the names of WFP departments and units, and the acronyms most commonly used in WFP. The WFP Editorial Style Guide (English only) is also available by clicking the link located on the right-hand side of this page.

This collection is a result of collaboration among the UN agencies based in Rome, in particular the FAO Meeting Planning and Language Support Group and the WFP Translation and Documentation Unit.
