This paper recalls fifty years of terminological policy in Indonesia. In a country where the choice of the future national language was resolved de facto before its independence but where the elite was mostly speaking Dutch, an Indonesian terminology was to be created in the mid-1940s. After independence the history of Indonesian terminological policy is divided into two periods. The first one (1945-1975) is marked by a defeat; the second one (since 1975) by real advances and a sustained terminological cooperation with Malaysia. But today the lack of means still holds up the terminological activity of the Indonesian language agency which is missing a significant part of the terminological production in Indonesia.
