This paper deals with computational linguistic tools and methods for the extraction of raw material for terminological glossaries from machine-readable text. The authors concentrate on monolingual German term candidates, and only briefly hint at tools and procedures for the creation of bilingual glossaries. Most of the examples are used to illustrate methods and results come from technical texts provided by the translation services of Daimler Chrysler AG and from legal texts made available by the European Academy in Bozen, Südtirol. The Academy is working on translations of legal documents for bilingual South Tyrol, and, in this context, on the creation, upgrading, and maintenance of terminological resources.
