Within weeks of the online launch of DIN TERM online enabling users to search for terms in three languages free of charge, DIN has now introduced a further language-based online service, the new DIN-TERMinology Portal giving registered users full access to the "DIN-TERM" terminology database.
(2012-11-16) DIN, the German Institute for Standardization has extended its range of online services with the introduction of its search tool DIN-TERM online in October and the DIN-TERMinology Portal in November. Both provide free access to the terms contained in the "DIN-TERM" terminology database in German, with English and French equivalents wherever available. The portal will prove useful to technical writers, editors and translations, internationally active organizations, as well as to national and international experts and institutions involved in laying down specifications. The database is updated on a regular basis.
DIN-TERM online (www.din.de/sce/dinterm-en) provides access to over 170,000 terms and definitions taken from currently valid German standards. Many are taken from DIN Standards based on European and International Standards.
The DIN-TERMinology Portal can be found at www.din-term.de. Registered users not only find terms and their translations from currently valid standards plus the associated definitions, notes, examples, etc., they also have access to terms and definitions from draft standards and specifications together with details of the source document from which the term was taken. Users can either search for a specific term, look through the whole database, or choose to see all the entries for an individual standards committee, listed alphabetically.
