20 Years of Innovation

A Brief History of TermWeb and Interverbum Technology

From its inauguration 20 years ago, TermWeb has been leading the way in developing the art of terminology management, crowned this year by the launch of TermWeb 4, the most advanced terminology management software available today.

The foundation and first prototype

TermWeb was created by two computer science majors at the Faculty of Science and Engineering from the University of Linköping in Sweden and their company Nescit Systems. Soon they formed a joint venture with the Swedish language service provider Interverbum, a forerunner in technical language services that also saw the potential for and future need of terminology management.

Patrik Westlund and Ioannis Iakovidis, who is still the managing director of Interverbum Technology.
