floating wood over terrazzo

we have a terrazzo floors and want to pull up the carpet currently laid over them to install floating engineered wood floors. Is there anything special we must do to prepare the terrazzo, or can we just treat it like concrete?

No Problem

I recently installed wood laminate over terrazzo. I did go with the mfrs recommended underlayment (pad) and vapor barrier to prevent moisture from wicking up to the laminate, typical 1/4 round trim on the baseboards, and all worked well. My terrazzo was very flat with no cracks.
