Guidelines for collaborative legal/administrative terminology work are now available for download !
They have been developed within the ICT-PSP project LISE – Legal Language Interoperability Services, which aimed at responding to the need for better tools supporting terminological activities and also at giving some methodological guidance for terminology work in the legal/administrative domain.
These Guidelines aim at alleviating the methodological difficulties faced when doing collaborative terminology work in the legal/administrative domain. Many small and large organisations doing terminology work in Europe do not have written guidelines and instructions for their workflows or have only partial documentation.
One of the goals of the present Guidelines therefore is to offer an example of the contents and issues such documentation should consider. The hope is to encourage more terminologists to write and, ideally, share documentation on terminology workflows, activities, roles and methodologies.
