1. Concept management principles
Terminology management processes expected by Glossarist are based on ISO 704 and ISO 10241.
Concepts and designations
Treat terms as “shortcut” designations for concepts, and concepts as units of understanding. 
Each concept has—for each supported language—a definition, notes, examples, and one or more terms.
Per each language you use, Glossarist maintains a revision history of concept properties and terms. Each revision is a “snapshot” of concept state in that language, and new revisions are created by accepting change requests (see below).
Each term contains a vertbal designation for the concept and is associated with certain grammatical traits and respective normative statuses.
Normative status of a term
Since multiple terms can be used to represent a particular concept and language in any field constantly evolves, a Glossarist term is marked as “preferred”, “admitted” or “deprecated” (in order of decreasing preference).
Glossarist’s concept database is treated as a register, and updates to concepts or terms are handled through the change request workflow.
Submitters will need to request changes, and register manager will need to review and accept them. 
Desktop software for editing data
Managing concept systems (proposing changes and reviewing changes) is done using Glossarist Desktop. It is expected that you will use this software while working with the concept system register.
