Infoterm started its publication activities in the early 1980s, when publications on terminological topics were still rare. The first Infoterm book publications appeared in cooperation with UNESCO and K.G. Saur Publisher.
The creation of the International Network for Terminology (TermNet) by Infoterm in 1980 through a project with UNESCO was the starting point for the diversification of Infoterm’s publication activities. The success of this strategy was largely due to the generous support from the Translation Bureau of the Canadian Government in the start-up phase.
After TermNet was transformed into an International Association in 1988, it also became the main publisher of most Infoterm publications until 2005, as there were:

- Publicity and promotion material such as the Infoterm Folder, leaflets, etc.
