Terminology Bulletin 261
The Translation Bureau is pleased to present the Sport Canada Glossary. Prepared by Elizabeth Fragua in collaboration with Lorraine Beaudet, François Joly and Charles Skeete, it consists of 1,340 entries that include terms relating to administrative and operational activities in the field. The Glossary also includes the official titles and vocabulary in use at Sport Canada, together with the names of national and international federations; it does not contain any names of federations from foreign countries. The initial base list was prepared from information taken from the electronic and hard-copy documents provided by Sport Canada. The Glossary will therefore prove to be an essential communication tool for all those working in the field.
