Abstract: Nowadays, Terminology Systems are not developed enough, so terminology standardization is necessary and urgent needed. Terminology standardization always involves a choice among competing terms. In this paper, two Chinese terminology systems –Mainland and Taiwan, are used as samples and a Chinese terminology builder will be introduced from two aspects. On the one hand, the Chinese terminology builder has to prepare lexicons, database of core and translation terms, corpus of definitions, and rule base well. On the other hand, it has to go through the Chinese terminology builder step by step. Firstly, input a term into the Chinese terminology builder. If the input is a compound word, break it into individual words. Secondly, search each individual word from technical dictionary, find meanings in the particular field, and look for corresponding senses for each word. Thirdly, select the most appropriate terminology for the each individual word through applying rules which are in the rule base. This step is the core measure. Fourthly, combine the terminology of each individual word to get the standardized terminology. Based on the Chinese terminology builder, several typical data will generated as examples and the two Chinese terminology systems will be compared. Finally, some defaults of the Chinese terminology builder and difficulties maybe come off in the process of terminology standardization will be discussed.
