Multilingual Rehabilitation Terminology. A Preliminary Study.
Wagner. , Elizabeth M.
In rehabilitation, the team approach demands harmonious communication among practitioners of many professions and occupations at many different levels. Technical terminology needs to be concurrently understood or able to be explained easily. Although rehabilitation terminology is still somewhat in a state of flux, enough terms have been identified and defined to make useful monolingual and multilingual glossaries and dictionaries possible. This study itemizes existing examples of multilingual rehabilitation terminology references with brief annotations regarding their source, format, purpose, and the languages included. No value judgments have been undertaken regarding the content of these documents and publications. The study also lists various groups which are engaged in developing multilingual rehabilitation terminology references. Supplementary lists cite publications that could be useful in selecting terminology, developing definitions, and translating nomenclature and pertinent phrases. Rehabilitation International would be pleased to receive any comments about this report which the reader may wish to offer. (Author/AMM)
