The Language Centre has created a terminology database to simplify communication within a bilingual institution, such as Universiteit Maastricht. This database, consisting of both Dutch and English terms, provides you with the tools to use and translate the UM terminology unambiguously.

Select, if necessary, one of the subdivisions, type a term, and hit the search button. Hit the button show all for a complete list, or (if selected) a list of one of the subdivisions.

Add terms
Language is in motion and therefore changes constantly. Thus, this database will be updated and new terms will be added. Please inform us if you have any remarks or suggestions concerning current or missing terms. You can send your reactions to the Language Centre at We would like to thank you in advance for your reactions.
