First Intellectual Output Is Out

The first intellectual output is a multilingual dictionary to support hunting tourism. The dictionary contains the most frequently used terms in hunting tourism. There is a connection between hunting (gamekeeping) and tourism. The dictionary thus helps to expand and connect two complementary areas. Hunting tourism, i.e. the activity of people traveling to places and staying in places outside their usual environment for less than one full year, for the purpose of hunting game, has been on the rise in recent years.

Because hunting has its own specific language, it is the responsibility of each hunter to use the terms correctly. The specification and precise formulation of individual terms is not as simple as it seems at first glance. Many concepts are inherited from generation to generation and are based on traditions that are different in each country. Hunting terms are most often used to describe different parts of the body of game, to describe their life manifestations, to distinguish the sex and age of game.

A unified understanding of terminology, unification of terms used is the basis for international cooperation and development of strategies in the field of hunting tourism. The dictionary contains terms in Czech, English, including explanatory notes, in German, Serbian, Hungarian and Finnish. Each partner country has proposed the terms that are used and that it considers most important. In total, the dictionary contains 1,400 terms that are important and specific to hunting tourism.

The aim in creating the dictionary was to cover common and technical terms that one needs when hunting in different localities. It is planned to prepare an interactive dictionary in the future and we will also add other languages. The dictionary is divided into several parts according to areas of use. In the dictionary you can find the names of wild game species in Europe, their anatomy, behavior and habitat. Also included are landscape features, hunting infrastructure, equipment and clothing, shooting expressions, normal hunting situations. The core of the dictionary is the different types of hunting and wildlife and their management. The sections on tourism, legal aspects and business are also particularly important when traveling abroad.

Many terms that are often used in one country have almost disappeared in another, making them difficult to translate. To help users better understand the terms, a brief explanation in English is added to each. The dictionary also includes drawings of selected animals, which are the most important in hunting tourism. For each drawing, the individual parts of the animal's body are marked and assigned a table with translations into selected languages. The goal is for the user not to have to look up every part of a particular animal's body in the dictionary, but to simply look up the animal and see the term that part of the animal's body expresses.

The dictionary is divided into 5 main parts. The first part is in English and contains an alphabetical list of all terms, followed by drawings. The other parts are in individual languages ??and the terms are arranged alphabetically, and each part always ends with authentic photographs of hunting facilities in the given country for illustration.
