Abstract

As terminology experts and translators with a personal interest in the subject the authors have examined user interfaces of existing terminology tools closely and asked the following questions:

  1. (1)

    Does Easy-to-Read Language terminology have to be managed?

  2. (2)

    Are existing software-based terminology tools suitable for the job?

  3. (3)

    How is Easy-to-Read (EtR) terminology collected, evaluated and stored?

The authors would like to help develop a fundamental structure in which terminology for EtR-projects can be stored, managed and retrieved easily and effectively within the translation process.
