Terminology is the study of specialized concepts and their linguistic designations or terms. These specialized knowledge units are the result of the development of cognitive processes and communication among experts of a special language community (Sager 1997, 25). Terminology work focuses on the description of domain-specific knowledge structures and how they are transmitted in different communicative contexts. It also involves the organization and recording of the meaning and usage of terms in terminological resources such as term bases, dictionaries and glossaries, which can be used for text decoding as well as for text generation.
