Abstract

This paper aims to show how Terminology can help foster interoperability and more effective knowledge representation, organisation and sharing in the biomedical field, and on the other hand, support specialised communication among various stakeholders. SNOMED CT will be used to illustrate this, with the focus being on formal and textual (or natural language) definitions – the latter currently underrepresented in this resource - and on how a doubledimensional terminological approach can benefit textual definition drafting, thereby assisting the work carried out by SNOMED CT national translation teams.
