Terminology readings

What is terminology?

If you still have doubts, you can take a look at this article in English where you can find a very useful definition of terminology as the “set of designations belonging to one special language” [ISO 1087:2000]. Terminology is important because a careful defined terminology enables people in a particular industry to communicate clearly. A common understanding of terms allows people to communicate ideas more rapidly with less need for lengthy explanations.
