University of Salerno for IATE: Municipal Waste Management

universita degli studi di salerno

Short presentation of the project

The project aims at developing a linguistic–terminological resource in the Municipal Waste Management domain. The result will be the «MWM–Lexicon» a Linguistic Linked Open Data bilingual terminology – Italian / English –  to be shared and used in the Semantic Web. «MWM–Lexicon» will be used to create terminological cards in EU terminology database IATE. IATE can be not only a resource for translation and terminology-sharing, but also a double-sided tool for the interoperability solutions of informative systems of local, national and EU public administrations. It can be a double-sided tool because the terms used for the e-government applications in the different languages can be used as indexes, metadata and links to IATE entries that describe their meaning and use in the institutional domains; on the other side, the IATE entries can become a hub in order to link the terms to the institutional documents in which they are contained.

Master’s and PhD students are involved in the University of Salerno’s project on the interoperability solutions for IATE.
