Evaluation procedure

In this section we take an initial look at evaluation procedures. In the end, the practical goal of standardization of evaluation is to make available some uniform and well-founded answers to the question how to proceed if one wants to evaluate a given object.

In the first general part, we list some general aspects of evaluation procedure. The second part applies this to complex measurement of translation memories. Similar treatments are foreseen for testing term banks and possibly other components of translators' aids.
