Structuring Terminological Data: The BISTRO Proposal
MetadataShow full item record
For more than 15 years the computer is employed in terminology work. In the beginning terminology systems have been simple programs for inserting and modifying data stored in a static format. During the last couple of years the potentialities of computer assistance became obvious. These days systems that offer the possibility to flexibly access, link and display information are much asked for. In this paper we will present the BISTRO approach for a dynamic terminology system. We will point out requirements that current implementations have to tackle, provide a comparison with alternative approaches and discuss the strengths of our implementation.
