Diccionari dels esports olímpics - Presentació

The Diccionari dels esports olímpics, a dictionary on Olympic sports, contains 7.446 terms with the Catalan designation and definition and the equivalent designations in Spanish, French and English. It offers terminology related to these sports: archery, athletics, badminton, baseball, basketball, boxing, canoe-kayak, cycling, diving, equestrian sports, fencing, football, field hockey, gymnastics, handball, judo, modern pentathlon, rowing, sailing, shooting, swimming, synchronized swimming, table tennis, taekwondo, tennis, volleyball, water polo, weightlifting and wrestling. The application allows consulting the terminology alphabetically or gathered thematically in Catalan by these sports.

The terms come from the Diccionari general de l’esport, a work that gathers the update of the 1992 Olympic dictionaries collection and some glossaries that have been checked by specialists from the corresponding Catalan federations.

Clicking on Consulta de termes ('Term search'), terms can be looked up in three ways: using the alphabetical indexes (there is a different index for each language); using the Accés temàtic ('Thematic access') in Catalan (it gathers denominations by thematic areas, each one corresponding to one of the sports); or introducing a term in any language in the upper space Text de la consulta ('Text search'); this third option allows simple or advanced searches.
