    As a long-term MultiTerm user I would like to have the option to schedule exports jobs on the MultiTerm/GroupShare server. We export termbases regularly and it would help tremendously if we had the option to configure export jobs that automatically...

    I'd like to see layout definitions where you can define term formatting based on depending fields, e.g. terms with the status forbidded could be marked as red or strikethrough. This layout should also be visible in the term recognition windows in Studio...

  • Picklist on entry level still needs to be fixed

    • Under Community Review
    • 2 Comments
    MultiTerm may no longer pre-set the first value in a picklist on entry level. However, it still does not work smoothly: If I want to select several categories, e.g. "teaching2," research" and "department", the picklist-window closes after I have selected...

    Hi all, when importing data there is only one merge option: it will merge terms and fields combining them all together. In some cases you import terms with specific descriptive fields referring one to the other (source to status etc.). So after import...

    Users of MultiTerm Online are often not familiar with the MultiTerm functions, so they are not aware that they often need to activate the fuzzy search option to get all relevant matches. Consequently, it would be very helpful if the system administrator...

  • Fuzzy matching (or partial string matching) for terminology hits

    • 1 Comment
    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...

  • Change to duplicate entries warning to work better with concept-oriented glossaries

    • Under Community Review
    • 0 Comments
    The duplicate entries warning in MultiTerm is a bit hassle-some if you are building a concept-oriented TB, because you are bound to have multiple entries with the same term in one language. (An example SDL likes to use is "monitor".) If your TB contains...
