The editing process involves insertion, deletion, or fixing errors. In this paper we propose an editing process using Microsoft Word, where users can manipulate any text, adding comments and use all the facilities provided by a familiar word-processing environment. This new technique for visualising and editing ontologies has been tested and evaluated; the results are promising as modifying an ontology in Word is preferred by users to Protégé for some ontology editing tasks. We suggest, therefore, that alternative text based representations and office tools may be useful in the ontology engineering lifecycle.
