The success of the EAFT Summit 2016


The EAFT Summit 2016 has been a great success. It has been two days of different presentations, amazing speakers and great atmosphere. The European Association for Terminology (EAFT), in collaboration with TermCoord, has organised this Eighth European Terminology Summit presented on 14th and 15th of November in one of the European Parliament buildings in Luxembourg. We have had the chance to listen various professors and terminology specialists from around the word such as: Mr. Valter Mavrič – Director-General for Translation (DG TRAD, EP), Mr. Henrik Nilsson – TNC / EAFT President, Mr. Rodolfo Maslias from TermCoord (DG TRAD, EP), Ms. Patricia Brenes – famous terminologist and blogger, Ms. Georgeta Ciobanu – an academic professor, Mr. Jordi Bover – Director of TERMCAT or Mr. Alan Melby from the American Translators Association.

Do not worry if you have missed the EAFT Summit because you can still take a look at all the presentations, pictures and the most relevant tweets during the conference. 20.000 lenguas was present during the Summit basically on Twitter where we were very active by sharing relevant content of all the presentations. You can always take a look at the hashtag #EAFTSummit2016 to discover all our tweets and information which was shared during these two days.

Olga Jeczmyk from 20.000 lenguas (known on Twitter as @OlgaJeNo) was also playing a concert during the Summit.


The programme was international and it has been composed by three pieces:

  • “Liebesleid” from the II Old Vienna Waltz in A Minor by Fritz Kreisler
  • “Kuyawiak” from the II Mazurka in A Minor by Henryk Wieniawski
  • “El Cant del Ocells” traditional Catalan song in E Minor original arrangement by Pau Casals

And we have received a very nice feedback on Twitter:


This is why we want to encourage you to take a look at all the available material and follow us for the next Summit information. We will be glad to share more news with you! Thank you for following us, it is a pleasure to share our content with all of you.
