In this article we focus on the process of understanding terms in texts. We explain how a method for terminological analysis of specialised texts has been set up in order to develop ontologically-underpinned terminological resources. We will concentrate on the categorisation framework, which is used in termontography for structuring terminological information. This framework is currently implemented in a didactic software tool, called CatTerm. Student translators using CatTerm construct a knowledge model of a given domain while reading a corpus of specialised texts in the target and source languages of the translation exercise.
