Our latest Lexeri update includes beta versions of our browser plug-ins, along with a new plug-in for Figma. The browser plug-ins are used to check texts – written, for instance, in Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge or Firefox – for correct terminology, directly as you type.
Our Figma plug-in helps you to get the tone right while designing your websites or UI elements.
Browser plug-ins – Lexeri term checks for web-based systems
Whether you are writing an email in Gmail or website copy in your CMS, the Lexeri browser plug-ins come with text boxes to check the texts for the correct terminology.
How to check texts in your browser with Lexeri
The browser plug-in adds a Lexeri icon to your browser’s toolbar. Click on the Lexeri icon to sign in. Then you select the termbase and language you want to use to check terminology on the current page. Next you click on ‘Start Lexeri’.
You will see a small Lexeri button in your browser window. The Lexeri plug-in searches for all active text fields on the page and uses the selected termbase to check the texts contained in these fields.
You can then continue to write the texts. Lexeri offers suggestions while you are typing if it identifies term hits in your text.
Installing browser extensions
You will find the plug-ins for Google Chrome and Microsoft in the Chrome Web Store and the plug-in for Firefox under Firefox Add-ons and Themes.
- Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/lexeri/cfjiekdenijdoophfphdgmefbnmednjj
- Mozilla Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/lexeri/
What is a beta version?
Websites can be really quite complex. There are plenty of ways to display and technically implement text boxes on websites, and the security settings on some pages can occasionally make our lives difficult as well. So new browser plug-ins like ours can have a hard time identifying the correct boxes and reliably highlighting the terms it finds.
We partnered with some beta customers to test the plug-ins on a large number of websites. But we still cannot say with certainty whether the plug-ins will work flawlessly on any website or with every system. Kindly contact us at email@example.com if you find a website where the plug-ins do not work smoothly, and we will make the necessary improvements as quickly as possible.
Lexeri plug-in for Figma
Today we are releasing the beta version of the Figma plug-in, in addition to the ones for browsers. Many of our customers use Figma for the collaborative design and editing of websites or documents.
Lexeri can now also assist you in this process by checking the drafts for correct terminology.
How the Lexeri Figma plug-in works
As soon as you have launched the Figma plug-in on a Figma document, it checks all texts in the currently selected element. The whole page is checked if you do not select an element.
All text checks are performed live. This means that term hits are updated while you are writing the copy for a text element.
The Figma plug-in is available in the Figma Store at: https://www.figma.com/community/plugin/1231229665876093224/Lexeri
