In recent years, the professional profile of terminologists has changed considerably. The latest descriptions of the professional profile in German-speaking countries are from 2004 (RaDT) and 2011/2014 (DTT/DIT Best Practices) and therefore need to be adapted. The creators of the previous professional profiles are the three institutions RaDT (Rat für Deutschsprachige Terminologie / Council for German-Language Terminology), DTT (Deutscher Terminologie-Tag e. V. / German Association for Terminology) and DIT (Deutsches Institut für Terminologie e. V. / German Institute for Terminology), which are therefore also involved in updating them. One of the most important developments is that we are moving away from purely translation-related terminology work towards technology-supported knowledge management; including preparation of ontologies for areas of application such as SEO and SEA, among other things with the aim of optimizing Al applications.
