Interchange of terminological information

The following minimum requirements must be met in order to ensure that the interchange of terminological information may take place smoothly and without problem

Because terminological database management systems may be mutually incompatible, every system should provide as a mimimum requirement the capability to convert the format of the terminological records into either the MARTIF format (ISO 12200) or the MATER format (ISO 6156).

Cycom note: Newer MARTIF compatible formats are TBX and DXLT. A sample TBX file content is shown below. These files need to be protected from charset encoding conversion by dumb editors and emailers.
