This article gives an account of how to go about setting up and using a corpus of model texts to guide editing or translation decision-making. It describes tools and proposes approaches that provide practical solutions for the working translators and editors who work in specialised fields. The article complements a poster that was first presented at the ninth EASE conference in Krakow in 2006.
