The focal.ie/tearma.ie* project

Current phase: Phase V 2014-2017

Fiontar & Scoil na Gaeilge, DCU manages and develops this resource with funding from Foras na Gaeilge.

The database contains over 373,000 terms, searchable under both Irish and English versions. More than 4.5 million unique visitors used the website between 2006 and mid 2016. They made 16.4 million visits and 83.5 million searches in that time. According to annual user surveys carried out by Fiontar & Scoil na Gaeilge since 2010, the site is primarily used by translators and interpreters and by university students. You can look at the monthly statistics here.

The first phase of the work was carried out with funding from INTERREG III A (2004-7). Phase I of the work consisted of digitising and integrating existing paper and electronic lists. Fiontar & Scoil na Gaeilge continues to manage and develop this resource with project funding from Foras na Gaeilge. Many resources have been added under subsequent phases, including collections of sports, arts and legal terms, tools for translation memories and other resources for translators, and a link facility to The New Corpus for Ireland.

Phase VI of the project began on 1 June 2017 and, among other things, a new editorial system and a new website are planned.

*The web address for the National Terminology Database for Irish changed from focal.ie to tearma.ie on 1 March 2015.

Help files are available here and a terminology skills course here.
