The length factor in automatic bilingual terminology extraction


Volk, M; Pantli, A-K; Malka, A M (2002). The length factor in automatic bilingual terminology extraction. In: 6th International Conference on Terminology and Knowledge Engineering, Nancy, 2002 - 2002.

Abstract

This paper describes an evaluation of filtering methods for bilingual terminology extraction. Terminology extraction systems often favor recall over precision. This strategy results in an enormous number of term candidate pairs that have to be manually checked and cleaned. In the most extreme the post-editing step is so cumbersome that it prevents a system from practical employment. We show that filters based on formal criteria efficiently help in reducing manual labor. The most promising filter is based on the length difference between the source term candidate and the target term candidate.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
