This 'Main' group is the most basic group in the entire Bosconet-wiki. It contains (apart from the Home Page) the basic structure of the wiki - central content, sidebars and so forth.  But you are also likely to find many topics here that you will not find under any of the distinctively 'Salesian' headings; in other words, Main contains non or at least very loosely Salesian-related material.

5.  Translation and terminological issues

Salesian Termbase, available from these pages (see left hand sidebar) now supersedes all other efforts. For legacy purposes, the links that follow still work and you may indeed find additional information in some of them not contained in ST which is a far more rigorous terminological presentation.


Glossary This is a simplified but efficient way (via SDL) of identifying Salesian terminology and its meaning and usage.  A more elaborate version (allowing search in a huge corpus of texts, is called Select
