Term Bases (TMS)

Create or Add a New Term

Content is machine translated from English by Phrase Language AI.

If multiple terms need to be added, they must be added one at a time or if many are required, the term base can be modified externally. If term endings are complex, be aware of how term morphology is handled.

To create or add a new term as a PM, follow these steps:

  1. From a term base page, click New.

    The new term pane opens with empty fields for all languages in the term base.

  2. Fill in terms for each language.

  3. Click Add.

    The new term is added to the term base.

To create a new term as a Linguist, follow these steps:

  1. From the editor, click Editor_New_Term.png, or under the Tools menu, click Add term (ALT+T).

    The Add term pane opens at the bottom of the editor.

  2. Provide Source term and Target term.

  3. Specify options:

    • Preferred

      • If multiple terms are similar, one can be marked as Preferred. The preferred synonym will be displayed above the others in the editor's CAT pane. Otherwise, synonyms are listed in alphabetical order.

    • Forbidden

      • When a term is marked Forbidden, Linguists are informed not to use it. A QA check displays a warning if this term is used in the target.

    • Case sensitive

    • Match type (Fuzzy or Exact)

  4. Click Add.

    The new term is added to the term base.

New terms added by a Linguist with standard user rights will have the status New and are indicated in the editor by a light grey TB text. New terms added by a Linguist with rights to edit all terms in a TB will have the status Approved.
