The primary aim of this paper was to analyze the state of terminology of economics in Albanian language, and depending on the problems identified, to address some recommendations as tasks that are deemed necessary for future research that would contribute to its standardization. The paper begun from the hypothesis that the terminology in question is relatively rich, but finds that academic and scientific research are very limited or largely neglected, thus creating a vacuum in its broader and unified usage. Notwithstanding the presence of earlier terms of foreign languages’ origin, it appears that keeping them in usage is more preferable than switching from borrowings of one influential language of the time to another. These foreign language impacts, which historically have proven not to be everlasting, have only complicated the understanding of this terminology among those whose mother tongue is Albanian.
