The Conservation Dictionary

The European Commission has awarded financial support (Project No.
CONNECT99/A2/83) for the creation of a multilingual dictionary of
conservation/restoration terminology in printed and digital format.
The project began in December 1999 and officially ends in July 2001,
and is being organized and developed by following institutional
partners: The coordinating body, Technological Educational
Institution of Athens (T.E.I. Athens), Greece; The University of
Manchester, United Kingdom; Fachhochschule fur Technik und
Wirtschaft Berlin (FHTW), Germany; Instituut Collectie Nederland
(ICN), The Netherlands; EVTEK Institute of Art and Design, Vantaa,
Finland; P.K. Net Informatics Ltd., Greece;

So far 5000 terms from all the conservation fields have been
collected and currently definitions are being written in English for
approximately 3000 of these terms.  The terms and their definitions
will be translated into the following languages: Dutch, French,
German, Greek, and either Italian or Spanish.  Images and sound will
accompany the terms.  The dictionary will be presented as a CD with
an accompanying printed version at the next ICOM Working Group
Meeting on Training and Education to be held in Greece in September

Additional funds have been raised by the Greek and Estonian
governments for translations of the terms and definitions into
Hungarian and Estonian.

Any institutions interested in more information concerning this
project are asked to contact Dr. Vasilike Argyropoulos, T.E.I.
Athens (email: bessie [at] teiath__gr).  Also, the term list will be made
available upon request for those conservation professionals wishing
to send their comments.
