Since 1985, ISO/TC 37 has seen a spectacular development towards one of the most important horizontal technical committees of ISO as a whole. As terminologies are more often than not combined with or embedded in other kinds of content, ISO/TC 37 extended its scope to reflect the requirements of today’s globalization and localization in our multilingual information society. Since 2005, ISO/TC 37 reads “Terminology and other language and content resources”, and standardizes basic principles, requirements and methods concerning the management of terminology and as well as language resources (in language technology) and content resources of structured content (in content management).
As from January 2009, the secretariat of ISO/TC 37 is hosted by the China National Institute of Standardization (CNIS) on behalf of the Standardization Administration of the People’s Republic of China (SAC).
