Fuzzy matching (or partial string matching) for terminology hits

Lately, we’ve been experiencing challenges with multiple languages where key terminology in the TermBases is not returning matches due to morphological variations of “gluing” words together in the source.

We propose that SDL develops “terminology fuzzy matching” option to support WorldServer Online Workbench as well as the upcoming SDL Studio releases.

As a reference, this feature is already implemented in OmegaT and is extremely useful.

To give an example of what we are talking about:
If a new source segment contains “airport” and the project TermBase contains the term entry “port” there should be a match.
Can you provide feedback on this and let us know of SDL is planning to implement this capability in the near future?
