LookUp – System for Terminology Management

Terminology management for terminologists, translators and editors

LookUp is a web-based terminology management system that allows you to manage your terminology in a central location. Via the Internet or intranet, authorized users can access your terminology or edit it if they have the appropriate rights.

“LookUp has proven itself as a practical terminology system for everyday translation. We can no longer imagine our work without this terminology all-rounder!”

Flexible data model

You can design your terminology entries as you wish. You can define any number of fields, such as status, definition, source, illustration or specific attributes. The terminology database is concept-oriented, which means that you can assign several terms to a single concept (e.g. “application”, “program”, “application”, “software”, etc.). This allows you to control the use of a term by adding a usage recommendation (such as “allowed”, “prohibited” or “preferred”).

User rights

There are different user rights that you can assign for each language individually: Read, edit, comment, export, import, manage. Notifications of any changes or new entries made are sent to the responsible users.

Knowledge module

LookUp contains a unique knowledge module that enables you to do even more with your terminology. Concepts are the building blocks of knowledge. With LookUp, termini can be connected via freely definable relations, creating knowledge.

Here are some possible applications:

  • Bundling products and services to optimize sales
  • Highlighting relationships between problems and causes to provide intelligent assistance for your technical support
  • Optimizing your documentation by linking knowledge with key terms, for example, that represent standards or hazards.

Support and help

LookUp is a very powerful program. We will not abandon you to figure out the wealth of functions for yourself. You will receive an online introduction. We will guide you through the various menus and functions and we remain available at all times afterwards to answer your questions.

LookUp Mobile App

for iOS and Android

Your terminology at any place and at any time: Simply take your terminology, including the knowledge module, with you wherever you go and distribute it to selected employees and/or customers.

Usage scenarios: A technician or service engineer abroad can easily communicate with your customer using technical terms in the local language. Or you have built LookUp as a knowledge database using concepts, definitions and relations. This knowledge is then always available on your mobile phone, e.g. during work meetings.

Special features:

  • The dictionary data including relations are downloaded and can be accessed without an Internet connection
  • With every internet connection you or another user can update the data and thus benefit from the most up-to-date entries


„For the Deutsche Bahn AG, LookUp is a central building block for the management of corporate language. In addition to integration into translation processes, the semantic concept and term networking function enables terminology to be used in non-translational contexts (e.g., to increase intent recognition in chatbots). This makes LookUp the basis for central, group-wide multilingual knowledge management.”

Deutsche Bahn AG – T. Winter – Language Management (IBS)


“We have been using LookUp for over five years and are very satisfied with the differentiated integration and exchange possibilities that LookUp provides. This flexibility is reflected in the database structure as well as in the terminology management in LookUp and simplifies our terminology work and project preparation considerably”

Language Service of the Friedrich-Alexander University, Erlangen-Nuremberg
