A beacon of innovation in both the localization industry and online collaborative space, TermWiki.com, the world’s largest terminology wiki, has undergone constant improvement since its release in 2010, currently boasting over five million terms and entries in over 100 different languages.
To encourage even more people to contribute to and profit from TermWiki’s knowledge-sharing treasure trove, the terminologiants over at TermWiki thought it would be nice to arrange a little competition: Invent a new term (like the one above), receive the most “likes,” and win fantabulous prizes! The grand prize will be shiny new iPad Air, while second and third place will take away $100 and $50 Amazon gift certificates, respectively.
So if you have always wanted to officially coin that word you always use, now is your chance to do so and share it with the world! Clickfor the competition’s terms (no pun intended) and conditions and take your shot at winning that wonderful piece of “Appl-ied technology” (pun absolutely intended). The contest deadline is set for December 5th 2013, so be sure to get your entry in on time!
If you want to share any number of related terms, you can also group them nicely in a glossary blog (or blossary)! Many TermWiki users have created blossaries for a variety of topics such as arts, entertainment, science, and sports. It’s both fun and informative. To get started, just visit My Glossary.
By the way, “terminologiants” is totally still up for grabs, so…you’re welcome.
