Komputeko (Esperanto abbreviation of Computer Terminology Collection or "Prikomputila terminokolekto") is an internet project of the international association E@I. The project aims to list computer words in as many languages as possible, in order to stimulate the usage of correctly translated terms. Too often computer terms are not translated correctly, because translators don't have access to free professional online dictionaries. We want to offer the possibility to not only find the words, but we list as many resources as possible (with a link to it, if available) and also provide alternative translations.

At this time (February 2015), we have collected about 8800 computer related terms, 8600 of which have been translated into Esperanto, 5000 into Dutch, 3450 into German and 3700 into French.


There is a Wikipedia article about the Komputeko project. You can read there about the development, the usage and the book versions.
