Abstract

The god Janus in Greek mythology was a two-faced god; each face had its own view of the world. Our idea behind the Janus Head article is to give you two different and maybe even contradicting views on a certain topic. This issue’s Janus Head Article, however, features not two but three different views on terminology work, as researchers, professionals and students (the professionals of tomorrow) discuss “How Much Terminology Theory Can Practical Terminology Management Use?” at DaimlerChrysler AG.
