Management and exploitation of conceptual data and information in technical termbases: the electrotechnical vocabulary

Authors: Laura Giacomini

This paper addresses the lexicographic challenges related to the management and exploitation of conceptual data and information by examining the example of electrotechnical vocabulary. Four online tools with different source, typology and reference language will be presented and compared from the point of view of the user’s needs. By focusing first on the conceptualization level of the underlying database and then taking into account how this interfaces with the terminological component, the paper will progressively provide specific insights into data availability, ease of access and consistency, and will hint at possible ways to improve conceptual representation in LSP e-lexicography.
