Terminology acquisition has proven to be useful in a large panel of applications, such as Information Retrieval. Robust tools have been developed to support these corpus-based acquisition processes. However, practitioners in this field cannot yet benefit from reference architectures that may greatly help to build large-scale applications. The work described in this paper shows how an open architecture can be designed using web services technology. This architecture is implemented in the HyperTerm acquisition platform. We show how it has been used for coupling HyperTerm and ACABIT term extractor.
