  • (1888PressRelease) March 29, 2011 - Chaoyang, Beijing CSOFT International Ltd., a leading provider of multilingual globalization services and language technologies, announced today the launch of an online collaborative discussions forum as part of their fast growing social learning network, TermWiki.com. The new community-wide forum adds yet another layer of collaboration to the site, which already offers personal glossary development, knowledge sharing, structured encyclopedia development, translation, and many other features that support collaborative learning and content development based on a straightforward term-driven model.

    "What started out as a niche site for linguists and translators has quickly become one of the world's fastest-growing social learning networks," says Carl Yao, Executive Vice President for global strategy at CSOFT. "After TermWiki grew to become the central terminology reference portal on the Internet, we realized that the need for defining and translating industry-specific terms wasn't limited to the world of professional translation and content development.

    "In reality," continues Carl, "TermWiki.com is rapidly becoming a major platform for everyone to learn, discover and share knowledge, as well as to collaborate and connect with friends, peers in 1200 domains and 75+ languages. Math students need concepts defined; psychology students need new words defined and discussed; and even casual internet surfers need a reliable site to look up new memes and read about their favorite books and celebrities. Unlike Wikipedia, TermWiki groups related terms by industry domains, making it easy for anyone to find all relevant terms about a particular subject in one convenient place. TermWiki's new forum is the next logical step in providing Internet users with a go-to platform for social learning. Now people from around the world can come by and ask questions, provide answers, discuss new terms and grow socially as an information-driven community."

    The TermWiki Forum is organized into a number of topic-specific categories, including individual language forums, industry forums, hobby forums, and FAQ sections about TermWiki and terminology management in general. Because the site supports more than 75 languages around the world, users in developing countries who might not otherwise have dedicated sites for learning in their own language can join and start their own learning groups. The same goes for endangered or dead language and Conlang enthusiasts: if you've been looking for a place to chat and learn in Latin, Ancient Greek or Klingon, now you've got a dedicated forum to do so.

    The site hosting the forum, TermWiki.com, is a community platform for the collective development, sharing and translation of terminology. Members can use the site to view, discuss and learn industry and subject-specific definitions for more than 850,000 terms, or develop their own glossaries and invite others to provide feedback. Registration and participation in the TermWiki Community is completely free.
