tekom Annual Conference 2017

Congree Presents New Features for Terminology Work

At this year's tekom annual conference, Congree Language Technologies GmbH will focus on the subject of terminology. At booth 2/B06 in Hall C2 of the International Congress Center Stuttgart (ICS), the company will demonstrate the integration of its Authoring Server in the terminology management application SDL MultiTerm for the first time. Also new: The expanded function for extracting terms from existing documents with optimized possibilities for submission to terminologists. Fair visitors can try it out free of charge.

Terminology work is one of the central activities in the technical communication department. The first step is the cumbersome extraction and determination of new terminology. For this task, Congree offers a term extraction function based on linguistic procedures. "At the tekom annual conference, we will showcase our smart term extraction function, which provides companies with a very reliable means of automatically evaluating term candidates from existing documents and submitting them to terminologists or terminology management systems for review," says Stefan Kreckwitz, CEO of Congree.

At the Congree booth, visitors will also be able to see the application's close interaction with terminology systems such as crossTerm, TermXplorer, and MultiTerm. When writing texts, users can centrally access all authorized terms in order to ensure consistency in their technical documentation.

Visitors to the tekom annual conference can use their own texts to test the reliability of the Congree term extraction. Within the scope of a limited campaign, visitors may send a certain number of documents to Congree, for which the system will propose term candidates found.  Vouchers for this campaign are available directly at the Congree booth.

During the tekom annual conference, Congree will also feature three tool presentations, in which it will draw attention to the use and benefits of its author assistance tool for the technical documentation. These will be held on the following dates:

  • Tuesday, October 24, 4:15 – 5:00 p.m., Room C10.2
  • Wednesday, October 25, 2:45 – 3:30 p.m., Room C10.4
  • Thursday, October 26, 9:45 – 10:30 a.m., Room C10.1

On the first event day, Congree will also present its awards within the framework of the "Regards, Your Content" campaign.
