Description / Abstract:

FOREWORD 

Since the first years of its existence, questions of international nomenclature, which facilitate exchanges of both goods and ideas, have engaged the attention of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).  An alphabetical list of electrotechnical terms, together with their definitions, proposed by the first Technical Committee : " Nomenclature " (TC 1) was approved at the Berlin meeting in 1913.  The secretariat duties of the Technical Committee since it was set up in 1910 have been carried out by the French Electrotechnical Committee.

From the early twenties onwards, the Commission prepared the first edition of its Internation Electrotechnical Vocabulary (IEV) which was published in 1938.  That edition contained some 2,000 terms accompanied by the definitions of the concepts represented.

In 1983, the IEC Multilingual Dictionary of Electricity was published.  It was based on 40 chapters of the IEV, defined more than 7,500 terms in French and English, and gave the equivalent terms in seven other languages : Russian (the third offical language of the IEC), as well as German, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Polish and Swedish.

Terms relating to telecommunications were excluded.

The title of the present second edition : IEC Multilingual Dictionary of Electricity and Telecommunications, reflects both the ever-increasing role of electronics in the activities of the Commission and the inclusion of terms relating to telecommunications.

IEV dhapters of the 700 series have been prepared by joint groups of experts from the Technical Committees of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the International Consultative Telegraph and Telephone Committee (CCIR), the International Consultative Telegraph and Telephone Committe (CCITT), and the IEC.  The CCIR-CCITT-IEC Joint Co-ordinating Group for vocabulary (JCG) co-ordinates these activities.

This second edition is based on nearly 70 IEV chapters and contains 18,000 terms and synonyms.
