Rules of the Superior Courts

This is a database of legal terminology based on the Rules of the Superior Courts. This Statutory Instrument which relates to the Supreme Court, the Court of Appeal and the High Court was published in 1986 and was translated to Irish in 2017. Dr Micheál Ó Cearúil of the Department of Justice and Equality prepared the Irish version.

An aligned version of the English and Irish texts was created and terminology extraction was afterwards completed to establish the terminology database. Terms were extracted both automatically, according to word frequency, as well as manually, and a domain and bilingual usage sample was assigned to each entry. Other information such as a definition (in Irish) and cross-references was added to certain entries.
