Downloadable EU glossaries

Tip of the hat to Jost Zetzsche’s very handy Tool Kit newsletter on how to get more out of what I would call language technology. In the latest issue he points to a downloadable European Union multilingual ‘thesaurus’ (a glossary really) called Eurovoc covering all fields in which the European Communities are active. Especially useful for ‘enlargement’ languages.

BTW, thanks to a commentator for the reference to the (decidedly non-downloadable) Eureka terminology server.
