ISO/TS 22745-11:2009 provides guidelines that are recommended for the development of terminology for concepts in an open technical dictionary (OTD).
Compliance with these guidelines is not required in order for a term or definition to be included in an OTD. These guidelines are provided as a framework for developers of industrial terminology to ensure that definitions are consistent and understandable. Terminology that complies with these guidelines will be marked as such in the OTD. This will allow a user to perform a search that filters terminology based on compliance with ISO/TS 22745-11:2009.
