Term Bases (TMS)

Term Base Page

Content is machine translated from English by Phrase Language AI.

Clicking on a TB from the Term bases panel or a project page opens the term base page.

  • New terms (not approved) are displayed in grey.

  • Forbidden terms are displayed in red.

  • The term concept (source term, target term, synonyms) is displayed as a block of rows distinguished with white and blue background colors.

  • Term attributes are displayed in columns that can be customized by clicking Setup_gear.png.

Dependent on user rights:

  • The attributes of a term base can be edited.

  • A TB can be deleted. This moves the TB to the recycle bin where it will remain for 30 days.

  • Content can be searched for individual entries requiring editing. Wildcards are supported and the results can be filtered. New searches reset the filter.

  • Content can be imported from other TBs or other CAT tools.

  • Content of a TB can be exported for editing in another CAT tool and imported back.

  • Terms can be added, deleted and edited.

The Related projects table presents all projects a specific TB is associated with.


Once added, target languages cannot be removed from a TB as long as:

  • There is a single entry in the TB (even if only in the other target languages).

  • The TB is used in an existing project.

  • The TB is used in any project template.
