Spanish edition of ag thesaurus released


WASHINGTON – The USDA National Agricultural Library has published Spanish language versions of its Agricultural Thesaurus and Glossary of Agricultural Terms.
The thesaurus and glossary in Spanish support increased Spanish language access to agricultural information throughout the United States.
Contents. This first Spanish-language edition of the thesaurus comprises more than 15,700 translated concepts. Included are definitions for more than 2,400 of the concepts, in both English and Spanish, which are published in a separate interface as the Glossary of Agricultural Terms.
The thesaurus is used at the National Agricultural Library and at other organizations as a key component for organizing and describing agricultural information.
Publishing a Spanish-language edition makes it a valuable bilingual reference tool that benefits both Spanish and English speakers.
Spanish is the second-most widely spoken language in the United States, and is the most rapidly growing language used in U.S. agriculture.
Editions. Future Spanish-language editions will change in response to recommendations from the Spanish-speaking agricultural community and National Agricultural Library cooperators.
