A flexible terminological data-management system
Term banks of recent creation are characterised by being user-friendly and by providing their users with new features that facilitate the information-retrieval operation, thus making them more efficient. This paper describes BTMEX, the Term Bank of Mexico, as one of these systems. Although it shares with most term banks the storage of the same basic units of information, it offers a wide range of possibilities to retrieve this information, making it one of the most flexible term banks available.
