Chapter Summary

By General Assembly Resolution 3355 (XXIX) of 18 December 1974 sponsored by the three German-speaking member states (Austria, German Democratic Republic and Federal Republic of Germany), a small German Translation Section was created, fully integrated into the UN Secretariat, financed by a Trust Fund. The German Section was the first Secretariat translation service to establish a website, allowing the publication of German translations of topical UN documents electronically, and thus making them sooner available to a larger public. The German Translation Section maintains a terminology database, called DETERM, which is publicly accessible on the Internet.
