The school of Georgian terminology has a long history and a rich terminological heritage (church and theological, philosophical, grammatical, mathematical and other types of Georgian terminology dates back to the VII-X centuries). However, recently in almost every branch of science in Georgia, terminological diversity has ballooned, as loan words for technology, theoretical concepts, and newly discovered phenomena enter the Georgian language. With scientific terms being rapidly borrowed from other languages, the development of Georgian translation equivalents has become a pressing need to further the development of sciences in the Georgian academe.

In order to solve this problem, the Department of Scientific Terminology and Bilingual Dictionaries of Arnold Chikobava Institute of Linguistics at TSU has since 2013 organized a local annual conference “Scientific Terminology,” and publishes the scientific journal, “Terminological Issues”. Recently, this department founded the Vukol Beridze Association of Terminology of Georgia. This association has already been accepted as a member of the European Association for Terminology (EAFT).

This year, we are extending the format of our annual conference by expanding to an international audience. Vukol Beridze Association of Terminology of Georgia and TSU Arnold Chikobava Institute of Linguists welcomes participants to the first international “Terminology - Heritage and Modernity” conference on September 14-18, 2018 (in Tbilisi, Georgia)

We are pleased to invite scholars who work on terminological development and translation issues and all interested participants.

1. Specialized Terminology

3. History of Terminological work
