Creating Online Lexica and Online Glossaries

06.06.2016

Online Glossaries

Corporate identity, crossmedia and workflow, resilience and synergy – the language of the modern world teems with Anglicisms, buzzwords and special terms whose meaning is not immediately clear to everyone. Online lexica and online glossaries can provide relief where internet surfers or media users are in danger of getting lost in the jungle of foreign words and digital tech jargon.

Online lexica and glossaries simply and concisely explain a subject’s complicated terms and in this way make the issue being discussed understandable for a wider audience. Online lexica, as a separate electronic database, provide the user systematically organized, general or specialized information that is as comprehensive as possible. On the other hand, online glossaries are attachments (so-called addendums) to a blog or website, that further define the central technical terms used in the article by providing synonyms, translations or explanatory sentences.
Today’s printed or digital glossaries consist of lists of terms and their explanations, usually arranged in alphabetical order. Their origin goes back to antiquity where it was common to use marginal notes (so-called glosses) to facilitate the reading of written works. The most well-known online lexicon, available in various language versions, is offered by the free-licensed encyclopedia Wikipedia, which is compiled by many co-authors.

Work 4.0 Dialogue

E-commerce, big data, crowdfunding and cloud working – a few years ago these terms and similar keywords were only familiar to experts. Meanwhile they belong to everyday life. Digitalization has found its way into our lives – whether private or professional. Work has also changed; it offers many more opportunities than two decades ago. New markets and professions have been created, working hours and methods are changing too. At the same time digitalization entails risks: jobs are subject to cuts, employees are expected to be available 24/7. These changes have obviously not been lost on politicians. The German Federal Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs addressed this topic in detail in the “Work 4.0 Dialogue“. The opening event took place on April 22, 2015, under the slogan “Re-imagining work”. Andrea Nahles, Federal Minister for Labor and Social Affairs, welcomed 300 experts to discuss topics surrounding the future of the workplace. At the same time, the basis of the dialogue was presented: the Green Paper Work 4.0.

Digitalization of data

The digital change now encompasses nearly all the areas of social life. Internet and social media determine everyday professional and private life. Communication via smartphone and SMS, doing research via PC and tablet, maintaining social contacts via Facebook and Twitter – digitalized data shape social behavior and have revolutionized industry and trade.

As a huge reservoir of information, the Internet is essentially linked to digitalization of data, and computers produce the virtual realities of infinite cyberspace with data. Digitalization of data has made the overall flow of information quicker and more effective. Data stored online help establish skills, competencies and product markets on a global level. Cloud computing provides extensive storage and application resources on the Internet. Special programs manage texts, images, and data. Online shops offer their ranges of products on web portals; retailers and service providers promote their services or sales articles on the Internet.

Avoiding duplicate content

duplicate content

On the Internet, duplicate content is a problem that arises in many different forms. Web users are often faced with identical content when doing online research. Search engines react to identical content with negative rankings, and website operators are frustrated when Google & Co. suddenly stop listing their offers in the search results.

Duplicate content describes a many-faceted phenomenon that occurs on the Internet when identical or similar content appears on various websites. It can involve similar texts or text modules within the same domain (so-called internal duplicate content) or on various web domains (external duplicate content.) The duplicate content can soon become a make-or-break for the successful operation of websites. Similar texts give Internet users the impression that their online research has been pointlessly misrouted and at the same time, deliberate or non-deliberate duplicate content can have a negative influence on ranking given by relevant search engines.
