Summary

On 5 July 2010, preceding the Euralex conference, an international symposium on the role of Terminology Service Centres (TSCs) was organised in Leeuwarden (the Netherlands). The organisers were the Dutch Association for Terminology (NL-TERM) and the Dutch Terminology Service Centre (Dutch TSC). The starting point for the colloquium was a question frame, viz. WHO does WHAT for WHOM, WHEN, WHERE, WHY and HOW. In this paper, the main answers given during and conclusions drawn at the end of the symposium will be presented, together with a plan for the Dutch TSC to proceed and how to further international collaboration between TSCs. In the first section, the problem of knowledge-sharing will be discussed. We will show how cooperation between TSCs could result in the improvement of services provided by these centres, followed by a short discussion of the questions and recommendations presented at the symposium. Finally, the main services of the Dutch TSC will be introduced.
