In the emerging knowledge society and in pace with fast-growing
globalization more and more companies, organizations and language
communities face the need for an active, systematic and coherent
treatment of terminology.

For many language communities or governments there is a need to counter
domain loss (the use of English in preference to the main language of
the community in science and technology) generally or concerning
specific subject fields, to support language preservation activities for
minority languages or to overcome the digital divide and foster
scientific-technological and economic development in developing

Companies often need to timely adress problems and special legal
implications regarding product declaration, description and technical
documentation, e-business issues such as product classification and
interoperability but also marketing and corporate identity issues in
connection with the consistent use of terminology as well as costs
caused by miscommunication through the use of inconsistent terminologies.

Within the framework of the Terminology Week (13-17 Nov.2006, Belgium)
TermNet in cooperation with Lessius Hogeschool will organize a workshop
on this topic directed towards terminologists, decision-makers and
language professionals in organizations.

This workshop is presented by Infoterm, pioneer in the field of
terminology policies.
