Summary/Abstract: The thirty-five-year period of computer terminology has to be considered the initial stage of its evolution where synonymy and variability are characteristic features, which are usually determined by both extra-linguistic and linguistic factors. The choice of borrowed or Lithuanian terms is often determined by the relationship between borrowed and Lithuanian terms. The first stage of the newest dictionaries of computer terms approbated by the Commission of the Lithuanian Language shows that the terminology of the mentioned field is being systematized and normalized. However, the ratio between Lithuanian and borrowed terms is not fully acceptable yet, and it is partially determined by disagreement among specialists on the status of synonymous terms and the choice of them.
