In modern times, technical progress accelerates the development of new disciplines and sub-disciplines. That is why new and specific terminology becomes more necessary. The consequences of this interdisciplinarity are multilingual communication problems between non-professionals and experts of a special field or between experts of different sciences. Especially, these semantic problems include synonymy, antonymy, hypernymy-hyponymy relations and ambiguity etc. The main target of the iglos terminology management system as terminological tool of the 21st century is to avoid the multilingual misunderstanding between special languages of different fields by comparing the definitions of technical terms in heterogeneous languages.
