  • Set up, manage, enrich and maintain a central terminology and reference database for the Department and the Bank, and evaluate the systems available with a view to recommending the most suitable for the Bank.
  • Provide standardization and advisory services (research, knowledge generation and deployment).
  • Prepare and issue terminology updates, recommendations and technical glossaries for linguists and non-linguistic staff of the Bank.
  • Keep abreast of new developments in the area of language technology (computer-assisted translation and terminology tools), analyze, test and recommend these tools.
  • Inform and train the Department’s staff in the use of Bank's terminology and reference databases as well as in the use of computer-assisted translation and terminology tools.
