Abstract : This paper is intended to provide a description of the functionalities of the Dhydro platform for the editing and consultation of multilingual terminological data bases. Initially, this platform was developed to allow the updating and computerized accessibility of the International Hydrographic Dictionary (IHD). Published by the International Hydrographic Bureau (IHB), this dictionary initially consisted of three monolingual volumes (English, French, and Spanish) containing hydrography-related terminology. These dictionaries were maintained by editors specialized in each of the languages. However, the geographical distance between them adversely affected the actual development of the dictionaries, whereas the printed format restricted the dissemination of terminology vital to the maritime community. The Dhydro project has two major objectives: - To provide the editors with the necessary communication tools to enable them effectively to interact with each other, to edit terminological data, to ensure quick access to the data base and to publish it in various formats (bilingual or trilingual glossaries, monolingual dictionaries, etc.). - To ensure the widest possible access to the terminological data base, with the IHB having agreed to publicize the data resulting from the project.
