TERMDOK is a multilingual technical dictionary on CD‐ROM created by the Swedish Centre for Technical Terminology (TNC), published by Walters Lexicon (a newly established family company within the electronic publishing field which concentrates on dictionaries), and produced by Archetype Systems Ltd using the Dataware 2000 CD‐ROM retrieval software. TNC is a non‐profit organisation, supported by the Swedish government, engaged in the standardisation of technical terminology and the terms found in the multilingual dictionaries TNC publishes are included after careful investigation and co‐operation with the relevant bodies in the subject fields. A TNC glossary is comparable with a national standard as regards authority, consensus and quality. Termdok contains over 25,000 single and multi‐word terms taken from some twenty‐six different glossaries published by TNC. Corresponding terms and synonyms to the Swedish main entries are given, where available, in English, Danish, Finnish, French, German, Norwegian, Russian and Spanish. There are over 100.000 such equivalent terms. Table 1 gives an overview of the subject of each glossary, the number of Swedish entries, and the availability of translated equivalents.
