Q. Is there any standard for biometric terms?

No. But within working group 1 of ISO/IEC JTC 1 SC37 currently a document called "Harmonized Biometric Vocabulary" is being prepared. An intermediate version of this vocabulary which is occasionally updated will be found under Information Sources. For translations the national bodies are responsible.
