Words may have different meanings in different contexts. So, understanding and interpreting what is meant to be said requires mostly a general grasp of the field, and sometimes a very good grasp.
For this reason we tried to keep in predefined limits the words we add to our study, right from the beginning. For instance, the category Economy signifies for us the macro-economic data, financial markets, investment tools, balance sheets, fiscal and parafiscal subjects and so on. So, as we come up to terms from these fields, we add them to this category. Construction terminology, on the other hand, is a category with many sub-categories, like for instance the technical office. Under this sub-category, we have been providing the translations of terms from such different fields as: Design, progress payments, budgets, official letters, contracts and tenders.
In the table below, you may view the Categories and the Contents of each Category we have defined for this terminlogic study. Our point in making this classification has been to provide the visitor with the necessary tools to decide which term to choose, especially when the word he/she has been looking up has more than one translations, depending on the context.
