The GEROM Project Search Engine
Marco Stefano Tomatis

This paper aims at describing the technical engine underlying the project “GEROM”, an online bilingual (German-Italian) terminological tool which has been developed by the Johannes Gutenberg - Universität of Mainz/Germersheim, Germany and Unint - University of International Studies of Rome, Italy. GEROM has been designed to facilitate the comprehension, analysis and translation of Italian and German texts dealing with different social and cultural aspects of the two Countries which are taken into account. Therefore, in order to provide users with a terminological support which focuses on examples of real language, a corpus-based approach has been adopted. Furthermore, since the core of the system is founded on a web-oriented service, a robust search interface based on CGI (Common Gateway Interface) technology has been implemented.
