LISE is a collaboration project between the University of Vienna, CrossLang, ESTeam AB, Accademia Europea Bolzano and the Parlamentsdirektion Austrian Parliament, and is supported by the EU Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme.
The LISE project has successfully ended on 31 July 2013. The technology is now proven to be applied. It addresses concrete user needs, “a terminologist’s dream” according to IATE users. ESTeam Tools and LISE services are a sustained service offering that is already attracting new customers outside the domain it was originally designed for.
The LISE best practices and market research triggered the creation of a new SME, the Coreon GmbH. The technology deployed in LISE is now becoming part of Coreon.
LISE makes it possible to enable data owners in public administrations to manage their terminological data without the help of external expertise of database experts, terminology specialists on the inter-institutional, interdisciplinary, and multilingual level of work. The impact of this step forward of implementing an enabling methodology based on well-established and highly robust technology is important as it significantly reduces time and cost otherwise to be invested by data owners to improve the quality and consistency of their data and to get rid of legacy data.
LISE had two main goals:
1) Researching and understanding best practices in inter-institutional terminology work and harmonization.
2) Developing and establishing a terminology service platform to support inter-institutional terminology collaboration and automate related processes.
ESTeam brought in its unique technologies to compare and match terminologies from different sources, to highlight inconsistencies, to report on the amount of required changes and to trigger discussions amongst user groups.
While LISE was focusing on the administrative domain, its results are very easily adaptable to other domains.
