The ISCS has complied a Geological and Geographical Words & Terms Translations List. This list provides members with a variety of frequently used words and terms in the more popular foreign languages. The list includes such information in English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Spanish & Portuguese. This is an ongoing list and will be added to in time.

Country Codes
Another ISCS Project is a listing of two-letter country abbreviation codes. These codes are issued by the International Organization of Standards and are recognized throughout the world.

The ISCS is always looking for new projects to undertake. Some are created by the Society as a whole, its director or by individual members. In an effort to standardize the hobby of sand collecting and make it easier for collectors to communicate worldwide, the Society is constantly looking for new ways of providing information and uniformity within the hobby and make it more convenient for members to communicate with each other
