Knowledge is the wealth of any company. This why it is so important to manage the representations of all the concepts that consitue this knowledge. Terminology management, therefore, is an important economic factor. Terminologists are aware of this, of course. But they have to argue again and again with their managers, superiors or other decision makers, who may not (yet) understand why an investment in terminology management is an investment on quality, cost saving and improved overall performance.
We are discussing economic aspects of terminology at TSS 2009 in a presentation by Frieda Steurs, which is spiked with many real-life examples from business and industry.
This is essential knowledge for every good terminology managers. It will help to defend their position and improve their visibility within organizations.
