The aim of this chapter is to present some different types of terminology tools that can be useful for translators. Section 2 opens with a brief history of the use of computer tools in terminology. Section 3 focuses on what type of information can be found in term records, noting that human translators and machines users have different needs. Features of contemporary terminology-management tools are examined in section 4, and some of the benefits of working with such tools are explored in section 5. Finally, section 6 introduces another type of computer-aided terminology tool – a term-extraction tool- which has been under development for some time, but which has only recently become widely commercially available.
