Terminology sections or documents are critical resources for implementing a standard. However, users tend to take them for granted as just being part of the standard. But did you know:

  • In what situation a word or phrase is selected to be defined as a term in the terminology document or section?
  • What science is behind the definition of a term?
  • How to find definitions of a term in various standards for free?
  • How to relate the meaning of a term to the meaning in common dictionaries?
  • The word or phrase will be not be adopted as a term if the intended meaning of the word or phrase is found in a dictionary?
  • If not, you are not alone. New terms are not adopted easily in standards. It's a profound process - dull to some - yet largely unknown to people.

This presentation will shed light on the process and provide background information on:

  • The ISO and Technical Committee structure
  • Why some consider terminology work dull, yet profound
  • The science behind a term
  • Terminology principles
  • Concept systems
  • The difference between a glossary and a terminology document
