In Proper verb to denote 'consistent-ize', the top answer by vote says "standardize" should be used, but I have a few doubts.
Firstly, English is not my mother tongue, and I use it predominantly in programming.
So my understanding for the word "standardize" is that it mostly mean to formalize a set of rules, practices, and interpretations for the purpose of improving quality and interoperability of products.
My intended usage of the verb form of 'consistent' is as follow:
Make the content of a dataset conformant to the rules set in a schema.
So, in a technical sense, "standardize" isn't the correct word for it. And "normalize" is close to what I'm looking for, since my understanding for the word is mostly in the mathematical-statistical field, but there's something "consistent" is more appropriate than "normal", for example:
I can make the formula consistent by changing a number, or the comparison sign, but it doesn't make any sense to "normalize" it. It fits my sense of "consistent-ize" where the tuple (2,2,5) is the data set, and a+b=c is the schema.
In a comment I see "regularize" being mentioned and up-voted, and it fits the best.
So my question is: can I say "regularize an inconsistent statement/equation/predicate" using the technical sense of the words? Is there no better word to mean make something consistent according to the rules?
