A common framework under which the various studies on terminology processing can be viewed is to consider not only the texts from which the terminological resources are built but particularly the applications targeted. The current book, first published as a Special Issue of Terminology 11:1 (2005), analyses the influence of applications on term definition and processing. Two types of applications have been identified: intermediary and terminal applications (involving end users). Intermediary applications concern the building of terminological knowledge resources such as domain-specific dictionaries, ontologies, thesaurus or taxonomies. These knowledge resources then form the inputs to terminal applications such as information extraction, information retrieval, science and technology watch or automated book index building. Most of the applications dealt with in the book fall into the first category. This book represents the first attempt, from a pluridisciplinary viewpoint, to take into account the role of applications in the processing of terminology.

Table of Contents
“Profound application-oriented studies lead to sound theoretical understanding of the target. Perhaps few domains are more relevant to this statement than terminology. "Application-Driven Terminology Engineering" will surely lead readers not only to the understanding of the wide range of up-to-date terminological applications but also to the insights into the underlying theoretical sphere of terminology.”
