This guide provides recommendations on quality assurance in terminology management as well as practical quality assurance tools from the TermFactory research and development project. TermFactory is the name of a platform developed for presentation of collaboratively created terminological, ontological and lexicographical content in the form of ontologies. The platform has been developed since 2007 by professor Lauri Carlson (University of Helsinki, Department of Modern Languages) and his team within a number of projects.
This guide is not intended to provide a comprehensive theoretical framework for quality assurance in terminology work and terminology management. Instead, it provides the results of the bottom-up research deriving from the needs of the specified project and application. However, as a theoretical basis for the recommendations is also provided in most cases, the guide has both practical and theoretical value for various experts engaged in terminology work and terminology management.
