Dictionary Quality Control[edit]

The IALA Dictionary was digitized through a semi-automated OCR process. There is a need to check the quality of the digitizing process. Therefore the IALA Dictionary Editors are working their way through the Dictionary, marking each term appropriately as follows:

  • Terms who have been found to be identical to the original dictionary entry are added to Category 'QA'
  • Terms which need further editing are added to Category 'Needs Editing'

Approving new (and existing) terms[edit]

There is a need for a procedure for approving both new and existing terms in the dictionary.

At PAP19 this procedure for approving dictionary terms was discussed (needs to be discussed further):
