The chapter highlights a number of interconnections within the researchagenda and applications initiatives in translation studies and information science,looking more specifically at the development of terminology tools andretrieval languages. We examine three areas of recent development where wefind reciprocal exchanges of ideas and applications between terminologists andinformation scientists: automated term extraction and indexing, cross-languageinformation retrieval (CLIR), and the development of applications supportingfuzzy matching. We conclude with observations on emerging trends and challengesthat both fields of study are grappling with – the evolution of metrics,the transition from authority to inclusion, the impact of disintermediation, thedevelopment of semantic networks, and the move toward Big Data and LinkedData – and offer some thoughts on the potential for further collaboration andsynergy between the two fields.
