The téarma.ie project

This is the national terminology database for Irish, managed by the Gaois research group in Fiontar & Scoil na Gaeilge (DCU) in partnership with the Terminology Committee, Foras na Gaeilge.

Around 185,000 bilingual entries are available in the database. They can be queried in various ways, and the material can also be downloaded in TBX or TXT format. The database is linked with the New Corpus for Ireland. Information on using the website is available here. If you don’t find the term you are looking for, you can ask the Terminology Committee, Foras na Gaeilge, for advice using the query form.

The project has been running since 2005. Phase VI is currently underway and as part of that phase, a new site and editorial system were launched on 13 March 2019. The system is based on Terminologue, an open-source platform developed by Fiontar & Scoil na Gaeilge for the National Terminology Database and as a resource for other projects. You can find out more about Terminologue here.

Publications about terminology by Fiontar & Scoil na Gaeilge can be found here. If you wish to keep up with terminology and other new developments, you can sign up for the Gaois newsletter (in Irish), read the Gaois blog (in Irish), or get the Term of the Day on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. The story of the project is told here.
