TitleWord Manager and Banking Terminology: Industrial Application of a General System
AbstractIn practice, the use of specialized terminology in a firm’s internal documents is often perceived as an obstacle to correct understanding of a text. With the emergence of intranet communication, the possibility arises of making available on-line explanations of terms used in a document. A condition for the success of such an enterprise is that terms are recognized also when they occur in inflected forms or when they consist of more than one word.Word Manager (WM) is a system for reusable morphological dictionaries which is optimally suited to these conditions. In addition it offers a user-friendly environment for the specification and maintenance of a database, and a tool generator which provides a model for the specification of a finite-state transducer mediating between the WM database and the terminology database. The collaboration between UBS AG and WM has shown that these advantages can also be realized in practice.
