 for terminal emulator
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  terminal emulator
  
      A program that allows a computer to act like
     a (particular brand of) terminal, e.g. a vt-100.  The
     computer thus appears as a terminal to the host computer and
     accepts the same escape sequences for functions such as
     cursor positioning and clearing the screen.
  
     xterm is a terminal emulator for the X Window System.
