Guidelines for Establishment and Development of Multilingual Scientific and Technical Thesauri for Information Retrieval.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
The present guidelines, preliminary in character, are an attempt to facilitate the development and application of a standardized method of multilingual thesaurus construction and to reduce the number of arbitrary variations in thesaurus techniques. In the preparation of these guidelines the approach has been theoretical rather than practical. Following a definition of the multilingual character of a thesaurus, the guidelines list a set of initial conditions stating various contexts under which thesauri can be established. Then the phases through which the task can be completed are enumerated in chronological order: Establishment of first draft of target thesaurus, Test and checks, Establishment of a stabilized target thesaurus, and Updating and maintenance.
