Information

 

Eurovoc is a multilingual thesaurus. As a thesaurus, it can be used to classify documents according to subject and, more specifically, to organise or classify the document database of the European Union and thus make consulting the database an easier task. Given that Eurovoc is a multilingual thesaurus (it has been translated into all the official languages of the European Union), it allows any user wishing to find a specific document to perform a search in their own language, even if the document is written in another. Furthermore, and considering that equivalences established between the various languages are stable and fixed, Eurovoc can also be considered a multilingual dictionary, thus helping considerably with translations generally as well as terminology standardisation. With the translation of Eurovoc, Basque has now placed itself at the same level as the official languages of the European Union.
