Frequency Lists of English Terms

The "Frequency Lists" represent an additional product derived from the 11 BSR glossaries. They show how often an English term has been used during the elaboration of the national glossaries when translating terms from national language into English language. They also show by which country the respective English term has been used for translation and by which it has not been used. The pdf-files listed below provide different views on the Frequency Lists.

Please note: the Frequency Lists date to July 2006; potential modifications made in the glossaries after this date were not considered and will not be integrated into the list.
