Terminology Commission of the Latvian Academy of Sciences deals with development, examination, and approval of terms. Although the terminology creation of national importance was started in Latvia already in 1919 when the Terminology Commission for the Ministry of Education (which operated until 1921) was established, the current commission was born simultaneously with the Latvian Academy of Sciences, when it gathered for its first meeting on 2 September 1946. Since then the commission has held more than thousand meetings, organised working groups, prepared many terminological resources (dictionaries and bulletins), and its subcommissions have arranged several thousands of their own meetings.
Chair of the Commission Dr.habil.med. Māris BALTIŅŠ
