A thesaurus is a classified list of terms and concepts, such as a specialised vocabulary of a particular field, as of education, medicine or music. European Schoolnet with its members and project partners has been long working in maintaining a multilingual thesaurus to facilitate and support the multilinguality within the context of classifying learning resources.

The ETB Thesaurus was first created in the early 2000 as an outcome of ETB project. It has been used also in Celebrate to index multilingual learning objects. It is continuously also used in European Schoolnet's services, multilingual controlled vocabularies can help to automate part of the translation work for learning resources that have been indexed in one language.

The Thesaurus is now available in 14 languages! A new language in the family is Arabic. The other languages are Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Hebrew, Hungarian, Italian, Spanish, Swedish, Danish, and Greek. Take your time and see for yourself the value of these vocabularies!

The scope of the ETB thesaurus is:
* Content of multimedia educational materials
* Content of teaching, guidance, evaluation, and administration supporting materials
