Dictionary Edit Procedures
Original 1970-1989 IALA Dictionary Edition - Quality Control
The original 1970-89 IALA Dictionary Edition, was digitized through a semi-automated OCR process. There is a need to check the quality of the digitizing process. Therefore Dictionary Editors are working their way through the this part of 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
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):
