The aim of this contribution is to present the research project that the GENTT Group is currently developing in collaboration with the Tribunal Superior de Justicia de la Comunidad Valenciana in Spain (the Valencian Community Higher Court of Justice). In this new project the GENTT group intends to take one step further towards its objective to create an intelligent management system for specialised multilingual documents which allows the automatisation of the process of retrieval, indexation, semi-controlled writing and computer-assisted translation of specialised texts, taking into account the professional needs, habits and processes of the final users of these texts.
Since 2000 the GENTT research group has been working on the analysis of the application of the concept of “textual genre” (comprising its formal, communicative and cognitive dimensions) to conduct research on the drafting and translation of specialised texts within socio-professional domains. The methodology of GENTT combines corpus analysis techniques and methodological principles of the sociology of professions (Borja, 2005; Engberg, 2008; García Izquierdo, ed. 2005; Orlikovski y Yates, 2002).
