dcThis is a bit like "point of view" but more based on an angle of the problem than the viewer. 
JordiSo, it's just like [上]?
計算から言えばこれで正しい is a correct sentence?
MikiYes, it is. You can also say like 計算上(で)は、これで正しい。hmm it's just like 上. 
your nameis that 上 a uede or jyoude ? I guess from the example it is uede, which i thought was more "upon" than "based on" - ie implying a careful thought and conclusion. whereas "based on" is more like a conclusion is obvious, based on the information... is there that same difference in japanese or are they the same? 
Miki計算上(jou)(で)は、or 計算の上(ue)では 
MikiPlease see uede.
I don't think からいうと implys a careful thought and conclusion.
bamboo4計算から言えばこれで正しい is somewhat awkward - 計算からするとこれで正しい is preferable. 
razortmI think #6368 meant to say 言語 instead of 言葉 
tigerthey razortm, I`ve heard 言語 and 言葉 both used to mean language.
