Welcome to the EAFT site!
The European Association for Terminology is a non-profit professional organisation for the terminology sector in Europe. The EAFT intends to bring together all the individuals and institutions in Europe that are active in or have an interest in the discipline of terminology.
It is designed to further multilingualism through terminology, to provide a European platform for promoting and professionalising terminological activities and improving awareness of them, and to liaise and cooperate actively with other relevant organisations, associations and institutions at all levels.

TERMCAT has published the Terminologia bàsica de les xarxes socials, which includes about one hundred terms related to social networks, especially Facebook and Twitter, with the definition in Catalan and equivalents in Spanish and English. The content of this dictionary is open to be updated permanently, given the continuous creation of new social platforms and the evolution of the already existing ones.
