Considering that a DAM manages thousands of assets (photos, videos, logos, etc.), it’s easy to understand how important it is not just to organize them well, but also to name them well so that collaborators can easily find what they need. And this, thanks to a thesaurus.
A thesaurus is the linguistic tool that allows you to meet this dual challenge by establishing a pertinent link between collaborators’ questions and the results:
It sometimes happens that a company has several thesauruses. It’s easy to imagine that this is the case for Legos. One for the colors of the pieces and another for their shape.
Basically, with a thesaurus, all of an organization’s collaborators share the same language. And, for international subsidiaries, the thesaurus simply has to be translated into all languages. For everyone to be able to use it.
Also keep in mind that, like all living languages, your business’s language is always evolving. Meaning that some terms in the thesaurus will “expire.” As a result, it needs to be updated continually.
