Creating a glossary

Glossaries include sets of terms, their translations into one or several languages, definitions, comments and additional information.

By adding terms to a glossary, you eliminate the need to look up their translation again. A glossary helps ensure consistent terminology, even if several translators are involved in a project.

A glossary may contain terms in several languages, with all languages having equal status. What this means is, if a glossary includes English, Spanish and Italian terms, it can be used in projects translated from English into Spanish, from Italian into English, and so on.

It is handier to create separate glossaries for different clients and topics. Glossaries can be managed in the Glossaries section.

To create a glossary, click the Create Glossary button.

In the window that opens, specify the glossary name and select the languages. To add a language, press the + button. To remove a language, click on the adjacent cross button.

Keep in mind that the order in which you add languages does not matter, as all languages in a glossary are equal in status. You can add a comment and select a client and a project group.

Hit Save or click Advanced to configure advanced glossary settings.
