Interactive Terminology for Europe (IATE) is the terminology database for the institutions of the European Union .

The IATE database combines the terminology stocks of various EU translation services that were previously maintained separately in a single database that contains around 1 million entries. The entries were imported from the terminology databases Eurodicautom (Commission), TIS (Council), Euterpe (Parliament), Euroterms (Translation Center) and CDCTERM (Court of Auditors).


The project started in 1999. Since the summer of 2004 it has been used by the EU institutions and organizations for the collection, dissemination and joint management of EU-specific terminology . Since March 2007, anyone can access it via the web.
