summary In this paper we discuss the issue of ICT terminology and translations of specific technical terms. We also present SPOT - a new on-line dictionary of computer terminology. SPOT's web platform is adaptable to any language and/or field. We hope that SPOT will become an open platform for discussing controversial computer terms (and their translations into Czech) among professionals. The resulting on-line computer dictionary is freely available to the general public, university teachers, students, editors and professional translators. The dictionary includes some novel features, such as presenting translated terms used in several different contexts - a feature highly appreciated namely by users lacking technical knowledge for deciding which of the dictionary terms being offered should be used.
