The paper reviews three automatic mapping methods,including based on morphology, structure and corpus, and it also introduces the types of mapping relationship. Then some key issues about the terminology mapping, such as direction of mapping, inconsistency of mapping, transition of mapping relationship, combination of human and machine mapping, are discussed in the paper.

Key wordsTerminology mapping      Vocabulary mapping      Knowledge organization system      Interoperability
