February 22, 2022 – Webinar i

Quality Evaluation of Termbases

by Büro b3 in cooperation with Terminology Working Group of the Association of Hungarian Applied Linguists and Language Teachers (MANYE) (in English)

register now

Description

Methods of terminology work and termbase content vary from organization to organization, as does the quality of the termbase content itself. This, in turn, is primarily determined by the use of the termbase, target audience, subject area, resources, origin of the terminology, etc. In many cases, termbase collections grow over the years with no implemented quality assurance or quality control mechanisms. And suddenly a situation arises in which the quality of the entire termbase or even just parts of the content are being questioned and answers have to be provided.

In the course of our many years of professional practice, we have compiled a catalogue of evaluation criteria that should make it easier for other users to evaluate their own termbase or also a third-party termbase. In this webinar, we would like to present this catalogue of criteria.

Agenda

  • Definition of quality management concepts
  • Use cases for quality assessment
  • Evaluation criteria
  • Quality assurance and quality control of terminology assets
