Intelligent terminology retrieval and management with TermCatch and Kalcium Quickterm
A centrally managed and validated termbase forms the basis for consistent and correct company terminology. One of the challenges of managing such a termbase is that terminology is spread across different areas of your company and is constantly being changed and created. In one department, a new Excel list suddenly appears. In others, your terminology runs free in all manner of texts, from technical manuals and marketing brochures to software user interfaces and your own website. But how can you capture this “wild” terminology, tame it, and integrate it into your existing terminology? And how can AI support you in this and other terminology management tasks?
In our webinar we will show you:
- Where terminology may be hiding in your company
- How to extract, cluster, harmonize, and validate it
- How to use AI in order to be more efficient in your terminology work
- How the new TermCatch integration for the established terminology management and workflow tool Kalcium Quickterm supports you in this process
