While terminological relations are central in terminology work, they are rarely extensively described in large-scale terminology resources. Knowledge-rich contexts (KRCs) describing relations are commonly used in terminological analysis, but less often displayed to resources’ users, who thus lack information useful for understanding and writing in specialized fields. Using some existing resources, including the prototype resource the CREATerminal, we explore the need for terminology resources that highlight KRCs and terminological relations, potential strategies for integrating these items in resources, and initial user reactions to a KRC-enriched resource. We conclude that a smooth interface between basic term record fields and information on terminological relations in the form of KRCs, as well as easy and multi-faceted access and navigation, will help to create useful and user-friendly terminology resources particularly suited to student translators.
