The paper discusses web-based terminology-consulting services and analyses the selected specific questions which were submitted to the web-based terminological-consulting service, which has been operating within the Terminologišče website since 2013. Terminologišče is edited by the researchers from the Section of Terminological Dictionaries at the Institute of Slovenian Language ZRC SAZU, who are responsible for terminological issues. The service is primarily aimed at experts, as well as translators, proofreaders and others who deal with terminology. Users who submit questions receive a personal response by e-mail. In addition, the (anonymous) questions and answers are published at Terminologišče. An interesting database of terminological issues and solutions is thus constantly evolving within Terminologišče, which can also help other users with similar terminology-related problems. This paper analyses the issues that have been submitted since the start of its operation. The ... first large group who use the service are professionals, e.g. university professors or institute researchers, who require assistance with the introduction of a new term or the selection of the most appropriate one. The service is also used by students, who have difficulties using terms when writing bachelor, master or doctoral theses, and experts from various companies, who would like to denote a specific product in the most appropriate manner. The second large group of users are translators, especially those from European Union institutions and the public administration, such as officers from various ministries. The third major group are proofreaders, who also often face various terminological problems.The submitted questions deal with various fields, ranging from natural and social sciences to humanities, such as genetics, pharmacy, archaeology, chemistry, meteorology, psychology, the military, geography, power engineering, economics, informatics, medicine, astronomy, physics, musicology, finance, tourism, education, literary criticism, criminal law, agronomy, sports, and photography. The users face various terminological problems, often stemming from the fact that English terminology has become increasingly influential in nearly all of the aforementioned fields. Since the language systems of English and Slovene are quite different, simple adaptations are generally not adequate. In such cases, it is necessary to seek more innovative solutions. Usable terminological solutions provided in a timely fashion can prevent potential problems in the future. The questions submitted by the users are generally formulated in such a way that it is obvious that the user requires and expects a single solution, which indicates the importance of the normative aspect of terminology. Considering the positive response from the users, we can conclude that terminology consulting is an essential and useful service that complements other terminological activities.
V okviru spletišča Terminologišče že od leta 2013 deluje spletna terminološka svetovalnica, ki je namenjena akutnim in aktualnim terminološkim zadregam. Namenjena je zlasti strokovnjakom, pa tudi prevajalcem, lektorjem in drugim, ki se pri svojem delu srečujejo s terminologijo. Na vprašanja odgovarjajo sodelavci Sekcije za terminološke slovarje Inštituta za slovenski jezik Frana Ramovša ZRC SAZU, ki odgovore pripravljajo skupaj. Pri odgovarjanju upoštevajo glavna terminološka načela ustaljenosti, gospodarnosti in jezikovnosistemske ustreznosti. Odgovor po e-pošti pošljejo osebi, ki je vprašanje postavila, objavijo pa ga tudi na spletišču Terminologiš - če. Tako nastaja zanimiva zbirka terminoloških težav (in rešitev), ki je lahko v pomoč tudi drugim uporabnikom jezika. V članku je predstavljena ideja spletnega terminološkega svetovanja in njena konkretna izvedba na Terminologišču, natančneje je predstavljenih nekaj problemskih sklopov in tudi konkretnih primerov vprašanj in ...odgovorov.
