The meaning of terminology
Includes many activities ranging from concept analysis through structuring, management and sharing of knowledge to planning terminology within a specific domain and the use of this terminology in LSP (Language for Specific Purposes) texts, for instance in international business communication and web communication
The methodology of terminology was initially created for the implementation in technical fields in connection with the standardisation of technical products and the appertaining terminology planning. Similarly, nowadays precise and consistent terminology ensures an unambiguous communication in Technical Communication. However, in fact the methodology of terminology plays an important role for a wide range of various professional fields.
