A tool to follow standardized terminology

ESTEN system is a tool to follow standardized terminology that allows to evaluate terminology implantation in its real context use. It has been developed by IULATERM research group, from the Institute for Applied Linguistics in the Pompeu Fabra University, with the collaboration of Infoterm meber, TERMCAT Terminology Centre, and the financing of the Language Policy Department in the Catalan Government.

Specifically, ESTEN facilitates to create text corpora from website documents or texts belonging to the researcher. It also allows to create subcorpora with monographic criteria (date, subject, document field of origin). Within these corpora, the tool allows to analyze the appearance frequency of a specific form and compare it with matching forms. Moreover, results are offered in graphics that show in contrast the different usage curves of each denomination analyzed.

This kind of search in previously defined corpora offers more reliable results than those that can be obtained from general search engines and, among other uses, it is especially designed to analyze the implantation of standardized terms.

ESTEN is available in IULA website (http://esten.iula.upf.edu) and allows anybody, once registered in the system, to create and analyze their own corpora.
