Knowledge through Terminology –
From Multilingual Data to Domain specific Knowledge via Terminological Resources
The 4EU+ Alliance’s TermiKnowledge project is an international course in creating terminological resources. In 2021 and 2022 students of the University of Warsaw, Charles University in Prague, Heidelberg University and Milan University created a corpus, extracted terms manually, automatically and semi-automatically, identified their equivalents in other languages, designed a knowledge base and created terminological entries. The outcome is two Multilingual Terminological Knowledge Bases: COVID-19 and Refugee Crisis.
Four corpora representing different text genres were used in each of the five languages (English, Czech, German, Italian and Polish) to extract key terminology related to COVID-19 and to the refugee crisis and compile knowledge base entries.
