Most of the terminology work carried out by the Finnish Terminology Centre results in glossaries. The platform of publication of these glossaries varies: many of the glossaries are published on our web pages in PDF format or in our TEPA Term Bank. Some of them can also be found on other platforms, such as the Terminologies tool developed for the Finnish public administration or the Sote-sanastot online service offered by the Finnish institute for health and welfare.

Our glossaries consist of term records (terminological entries) and concept diagrams. Concept diagrams are used to visualise relations between concepts and to illustrate the underlying concept systems on which the definitions of the concepts are based.

In addition to glossaries, the Terminology Centre has published guides and handbooks on the principles and methods of terminology work and the tools used in terminology work.

A great deal of the Terminology Centre's terminological know-how has been collected in the Handbook of Terminology Work (Sanastotyön käsikirja; a joint publication by the Terminology Centre and the Finnish Standards Association SFS). The handbook (available only in Finnish) is an excellent support for practical terminology work.

Guide to Terminology (1st edition 1997, 2nd edition 2001) is a unique work which provides a concise introduction to practical terminology work. The guide is written by Heidi Suonuuti, a former director of the Finnish Terminology Centre.

A comprehensive list of the publications of the Terminology Centre is available on our Finnish web pages.
