Creating a term entry
The first step in adding terms to a database is to create a term entry. This is a kind of term package in which several terms, for example in different languages, with different applications, spellings or grammatical forms (e.g. synonyms or forbidden variants of a term), can be gradually created for one and the same semantic unit (object, product, process).

Select the database in your list of termbases and then click on Create entry at the top right in the termbase list.
Alternatively, you can also add individual terms at the bottom of the term list under Add entry .
This opens a form that guides you through the creation of an entry and the associated term.
The first step is to add information for the entire entry.
Go to the drop-down menu at the top and select the language in which the first term in this entry should be saved. You can go back later on and add other languages to the term in your term entry.
Defining the first term
Enter your term in the text field below.
Then click on Next to open the form in which you can add other details to the term, select the status and linguistic attributes and note instructions for use and a source for your term .
The information fields you see are optional and can be completed depending on which information you require for your corporate terminology.
Click on Save once you have entered all the information.
Functions of the term view
You will then see the new term entry with the created term and all its associated information.
This view can be used to process the term and to add data categories or information at any time.
By clicking on the pen symbol on the right, you can process the attribute you defined when creating the entry or add new ones.
You can now add usage examples to your term.
General points on the right in your entry allows you to process information at term entry level, for instance the subject area, tags and the definition that refer to all current and future terms within this term entry.
Contributing user roles and workflow
Only the terminology manager is able to create individual terms in the termbase. Terminologists can also create and process individual terms, but do so in a term draft, which is part of the term task created by the terminology manager.
