Banque de Terminologie de l'universite de Montreal. Description du systeme Termium (Terminology Bank of the University of Montreal. Description of the Termium System).
Dubuc, Robert
The terminology bank at the University of Montreal is described. It consists of a dictionary of scientific and technical terms in the form of a bilingual card index permitting the entry of information into a computer and its retrieval via a terminal. The bank is intended for use by translators, government publication offices, information agencies, the media, publicity organizations, and technical and scientific research and education centers. Priority is given to new terms which cannot be found in traditional dictionaries or familiar terms which have acquired new meanings. The terminology bank is distinguished from a word bank in that the former is concerned with how the same scientific or technical words may be used differently in different languages. Thus, each entry provides a context of usage with a term, accompanied by the source and date of the context. (CLK)
