4Description filters in ECL for translation purposes

Use case: find erroneous synonyms

In Norway, we suspected that «colon» was added as a synonym to some concepts expressing «large intestine». We identified some errors by using the ECL  <64572001 |Disease| {{ D term = ("kolon" "colon"), language = no }} : 363698007 |Finding site| = 14742008 |Structure of large intestine|

Louise Bie from Denmark has also explored the ECL function in Jira. The ECL  < 138875005 |SNOMED CT-begreb| {{ term = wild: "*esophagus*", language=en }} {{term != wild: "*øsofagus*", language=da}} was used to find all translations of "Esophagus" that does not contain "øsofagus".  In this way possibly erroneous translations can be found in order to review them.

The ECL shows that wild card is possible to use in descriptions filters, also negated wild cards. However, the ECL might need quite some time to process and provide results.
