Application-oriented terminography in financial forensics
This paper covers ongoing terminography work in the FF POIROT project, a European research project in which formal and shareable knowledge repositories (i.e. ontologies) and ontology-based applications are developed for the prevention of value added tax carousel fraud in the EU and the detection of securities fraud. We will emphasise that the knowledge requirements regarding users and applications determine what textual information should be structured at macro- and micro-levels of the FF POIROT multilingual terminology base. Furthermore, we will present our ideas concerning a multidisciplinary approach in terminography, called ‘Termontography’, for future application-oriented terminology development.
