New Version of the INIS Interactive Multilingual Thesaurus
21 October 2013 - A new version of the INIS Interactive Multilingual Thesaurus has been developed and made available at: http://nkp.iaea.org/Thesaurus/.
The new Thesaurus version continues the commitment of the Nuclear Information Section (NIS) to offer users an enhanced experience and greater support for new technologies and devices.
Simplified user interface
The user interface has been simplified and is now consistent with that of the INIS Collection Search. It is especially well formatted for use with tablet computers. A user simply chooses a language of input, and begins typing in the text box provided. A list of terms matching the user input appears. The user may either select from the list, or continue typing. When a term is selected, the date the term was added to the INIS Thesaurus, a definition (if one exists), and related terms appears. Each of the related terms may then be selected, to provide that term’s wordblock.
Descriptors may be entered in Chinese, English, French, German, Japanese, Russian, and Spanish. After selecting a term, translations are also available in each of these languages.
