The extension of the EuroWordNet and the Inter-Lingual Index records with public sector terminology aims at providing the infrastructure for facilitating access of European citizens and enterprises to public sector information.
Taking into consideration the problem of multilingualism among European countries the EUROTERM preparatory action's main objective is to extend a large general linguistic resource by incorporating public sector terminology into it and investigate a way to use such a resource for the exploitation of public sector information.
The EUROTERM preparatory action's actual purpose is to combine effectively multilingual public sector information into a common lexical database through a Terminology Management System, lowering this way the barriers across European languages.
Another main goal of the preparatory action is to explore how such a multilingual lexical database could facilitate access to public information and contribute to the development and use of the European digital Content.
