The Government of Canada has launched the Language Portal of Canada and free access to its Termium terminology database. Termium is available in English, French and Spanish, although most of the content is available only in former two languages.
Provincial Secretary and Minister responsible for Francophone Affairs June Draude said: “Enhancing French-language services will not only benefit our French-speaking citizens here at home, but will extend a warm welcome to other French speakers from Canada and across the world.”
The site has been designed to be a showcase for the French and English languages in Canada and also to promote the use of official languages in the country. The Language Portal features sections on dictionary resources, language use in Canada (official and other), language professions (from translation and interpretation to writing and editing), language usage tips, and a special section on “la Francophonie in Canada” and internationally.
The site also provides information on everything from grammar and spelling, to proverbs, punctuation and typography, as well as links to a Clear and Effective Communication section on the Translation Bureau’s main site.
