Participants of the workshop were given a short briefing paper that explained the reason for the workshop and put forward the 5 questions that were at the focus of the discussions:
Point 1:  Finding terminology LRs: where, how centralised, public/private availability?
Point 2: Evaluating terminology LRs: who, how, why, which standards?
Point 3: Maintaining terminology LRs: who, how, where?
Point 4: Technical features: formats, management systems, standards
Point 5: New terminology developments/practices on the horizon that might impact MT usability: research projects etc.

The workshop was attended by 12 persons of 7 countries (not counting the 4 LTO project partners), mainly experts in terminology, including the Head of Terminology of the European Parliament.
