List of certified platforms and user environments

December 2019 - version 10.9 has been released. What’s new?

In this update, thousands of new financial, legal and technical words have been added, including numerous multidisciplinary terms.

In autumn 2019, we initiated a major project to incorporate recent EU terminology into our dictionaries. The first specialised area we have focused on is energy, in relation to, for example, transport, production and policy, where much of the energy is renewable, such as solar energy, offshore wind energy and other wind power.

Otherwise, our work continues on multidisciplinary IT terms related to e-commerce, digitalisation and automation, including in several tech areas.

We put a great deal of effort into ensuring that the dictionaries are up-to-date and relevant, in terms of both technical and general language, and work continuously to identify new words for inclusion.

We would like to thank our users in both academia and the business community for their input and translation questions, which is crucial to ensuring that the Clue digital dictionary continues to be a dynamic dictionary and the largest technical dictionary on the market.
