About Humanterm

“Language is not an abstract construction of the learned, or of dictionary makers, but is something arising out of the work, needs, ties, joys, affections, tastes, of long generations of humanity, and has its bases broad and low, close to the ground”.
Noah Webster (1758-1843)

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others”.
Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948)

Humanterm is an R&D Project funded by the Universidad Europea de Madrid for a year with the aim of creating a terminological multilingual glossary for translators working in the humanitarian field. More specifically, Humanterm concentrates in:
• Compiling documents for term identification and extraction
• Uploading these terms into a collaborative platform that allows for public access and collaboration.

The team at Humanterm is made up of the following researchers:

Mr. Fernando Contreras (Principal Investigator)*, PhD in Scientific and Technical Translation (Universidad Autónoma de Madrid)
Mrs. Celia Rico*, PhD in Linguistics (Universidad de Alicante)
Mrs. Ping Shi Hu Sun*, PhD in Spanish Philology (Universidad Complutense de Madrid)
Mr. Luis Guerra*, PhD in Spanish Philology (Universidad Complutense de Madrid)
Mrs. Gala Arias*, Bachelor in Slavic Philology (Universidad Complutense de Madrid)
Mr. Manuel Moreno**, PhD in Anthropology (Universidad Católica de Murcia)
