Higher Education Welsh Terminology Project

This is a national project which is funded by the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol (National Welsh College). It was established in 2009 with the objective of producing a series of standardized terminology dictionaries that will facilitate the study and teaching of a wide range of academic fields through the medium of Welsh at university level. These dictionaries have now been combined into one volume entitled Geiriadur Termau’r Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol (National Welsh College Terminology Dictionary).

The project is led by Dr Tegau Andrews, whose responsibilities include researching terms and concepts and ensuring that terminology standardization work for this sector conforms to ISO international standards. She works in close collaboration with subject specialists across Wales, both academic and professional.

The initial part of this project consisted of editing three published terminology dictionaries for website publication. The subject fields in question were Law, Woodland Management and Psychology. Since then, standardization work has been undertaken in a variety of other fields, including International Politics, the Creative Industries, Mathematics and Physics, Chemistry and Business.

All dictionaries are concept- and consensus-based, and are available online on the Terms for Higher Education website and on the National Terminology Portal of Wales.
