OMG TECHNICAL MEETING SPECIAL EVENT
The Power of Words
Wednesday, December 10, 2014 - Plenary Lunch
| ||Dr. Kara Warburton |
Consultant in Terminology Management, Termologic and International Chair of ISO Technical Committee 37
Kara Warburton is an expert in developing and managing terminologies and vocabularies. She holds a PhD degree and over 20 years experience in this field. She leads the development of international standards and best practices and is currently the International Chair of ISO Technical Committee 37, which publishes standards for terminology and other language resources. She operates a consultancy in terminology management which services international organizations and global enterprises.
|Using her 20 years of experience as a Terminologist in both companies and standards organizations, Kara Warburton will present an overview of why terminology is a valuable business asset, and how the structure and nature of terminology resources need to change to serve increasingly divergent purposes. Standards developed by ISO TC37 provide a foundation for serving the common goal of consistency of meaning and designation. Developers of modern terminology resources, however, have to adopt additional strategies to serve both human and machine uses of the content. |
