Add a new term to an existing glossary concept

Tap the β€˜ADD TERM’ button (term details are on the left side of the screen, the right side is reserved for high level concept details).

Concept – the highest-level terminology element that contains concept-level data (e.g., concept definition, subject, etc.), including language-level (i.e., term language) and term-level data (e.g., term, the term’s part of speech, type, etc.). Simply put, a concept incorporates glossary terms and their variations with multiple translations and other relevant information.

Concept details:

  • Definition – concept definition.
  • Subject – a branch of knowledge the concept is related to.
  • Note – short notes about a concept that might be helpful to translators.
  • URL – URL to the web page with relevant information about a concept.
  • Figure – URL to the relevant image.

Term details:

  • Part of speech – e.g., noun, verb, adjective, etc.
  • Type – e.g., full form, acronym, abbreviation, etc.
  • Status – preferred, admitted, not recommended, obsolete.
  • Gender – term gender.
  • Description – term description.
  • Note – short notes about a term that might be helpful to translators.
  • URL – URL to the web page with relevant information about a term.

Creating a new glossary concept

Tap the + icon (please search for terms before creating new ones).

High level glossary details are added to the right side, the left side includes any added terms.
