The presentation assess the usability of the ontology platform protégé integrated with the terminology reasoning tool RACER to represent different terminology systems as the CEN European standard EN 1828 which is a categorical structure and the extensive French coding system CCAM supported by a GALEN representation. We present the 2 systems and some results showing the easiness to test the consistence of the ontology or of instances of terminology systems.
This type of software tool which is accessible as open source could support a convergent “reference terminology representation” approach. Based on a formal representation development and allowing diversity in linguistic expressiveness of end users this approach can associate shared knowledge acquisition in the public domain and competing systems, software developers and researchers.
