ISO 10241:1992

International terminology standards -- Preparation and layout

Establishes rules for the preparation: preliminary work (needs analysis, target group, subject delimitation, sources, number of concepts, choice of languages, schedule) and working procedure (collecting and recording terminological data, establishing the term list, concept fields and concept systems, formulating definitions, coining and selecting terms), as well as for the terminography (structuring of entries, order of entries, indexes, graphic representation, bibliography). Does not deal with changes that may be necessary when an International Standard is adopted as a national standard.
