Electronic government terminology is evolving rapidly in keeping with this high-priority government initiative, and the goal of the second edition of the Government On-Line Glossary is to provide an updated list of English-French and French-English equivalents in this new field. It contains terms and expressions, official titles and a number of observations.
This revised and expanded publication contains 3 075 entries culled from a large number of bilingual documents about Government On-Line and its many components, including technology infrastructure, privacy and computer security, business processes, people issues, communications and information management.
The second edition of the Government On-Line Glossary includes approximately 450 new entries, 350 of which were taken from an in-house glossary prepared by a team of information technology experts. The additional 100 new entries were extracted from Industry Canada GOL documents or were based on the suggestions received following publication of the first edition.
The glossary features terminology from a variety of fields, including informatics, telecommunications and the Internet; it is designed for anyone translating or writing documents about e-government.
