Scope

This document specifies fundamentals of translation-oriented terminography to provide guidance
for producing sound bilingual or multilingual terminology collections. This part of ISO 12616 deals
with the main tasks, skills, processes and technologies for translation-oriented terminography
practiced by terminology workers in simple settings. Terminology workers are translators, project
managers or technical communicators who do terminology work as part of their job, but are not fullfledged
terminologists. The more complex tasks and processes performed by terminologists and more
sophisticated technologies generally used in larger production environments will be covered in the
future ISO 12616-2.
