It's worth mentioning that this list and other lists of "Farhangestan"
approved words are also available from the Farhangestan site, which seems
to be down today! (Does anyone know why?)
The lists are usually available somewhere here:
The same list is also available from www.amitis.org under the terminology

add more words to the list and need to differentiate the sources in a more
clear way, which is currently not possible.
