In the knowledge society in 21st century, knowledge and information
have to be utilized by every person. Terminology has to be one of
language resources and their application is extended from the language
engineering application like information retrieval, machine
translation, to the multi-lingual marketing of enterprise and the
education in each country. Terminology in each domain is growing up
every day. Information and Knowledge management needs the precise
conceptual definition of terminology and harmonization. The technical
processes for terminology study are as follows:

 - To extract terms and additional data from the real usage of
 corpus automatically or semi-automatically,
 - To consistently define while harmonization with already existing
 - To test in applications like information retrieval, machine
 translation, and language service,
 - To unify, standardize or harmonize by investigating the major
 usage of terms and social norms,
 - To synchronize by multi-lingual terminology database alignment,
 - To study how to distribute the multi-lingual terminology most
 - To customize for each application and for each user,
 - To collaborate with terminology organizations at regional and
 international levels.
