Vocabulary of Government Finance Management
Rapid technological change has often forced businesses and institutions, even those working in the same language and subject area, to use different terms to designate the same concept in the same field. The federal government has not escaped this proliferation of terms.
Bilingual vocabularies and glossaries are the result of terminological research and consultation of subject-field specialists or of systematic standardization work. These vocabularies include terms with synonyms and, where required, definitions.
In general, a departmental glossary includes the terminology of programs and services administered by a department or government agency.
Publications in the Glossary Series contain the most current bilingual terminology used in specific subject fields. The booklet format facilitates consultation of the glossaries, which are excellent working tools for those who write in both official languages.
