The Centre for the Standardization of Welsh Terminology has been active in Wales since 1993, producing numerous terminology dictionaries in that time, both in printed form and in innovative digital formats. This Terminology Portal is a free, convenient, national resource which provides a one-stop shop for your terminology needs, allowing you to search through most of those terminology dictionaries on the web.
Details of the dictionaries which have been included in the Terminology Portal are available here. New terminology dictionaries currently being developed by the Centre for the Standardization of Welsh Terminology will be added as the become available.
The Centre for the Standardization of Welsh Terminology was initially located in the School of Education, Bangor University, but has been part of the Language Technologies Unit at Canolfan Bedwyr, Bangor University since 2001. It has been led since its inception by Delyth Prys, and currently has two other full-time terminologists, Gruffudd Prys and Dr Tegau Andrews. The development of the database, web interface and digital resource support is provided by Dewi Bryn Jones, and David Chan, the LTU’s software developers.
