Once you can have created a new term, you can then continue to process it in the term entry , add information and linguistic details and define the term in other languages. Learn more about:
- Adding and editing linguistic attributes
- Editing general information about a term entry
- Adding other terms to an entry
Adding and editing linguistic attributes
By clicking on the edit icon in the term field, you can change the attributes that you have already encountered in the form you used to create the term.
They include the following linguistic and grammatical categories: word type, part of speech, gender, number, status, usage notes and source.
You can also add usage examples to the term in the term field at the bottom, for instance sentences, text snippets and segments in which the term is actually used in your corporate texts.
Editing general information about a term entry
The information in the General points section refers to all terms that are and will be saved in this term entry and are therefore linked to the entire term entry. Editing this information will change it for all terms in the entry. Click here to learn more.
Adding other terms to an entry
Add term beneath the term field is used to enter alternative words for the semantic unit, e.g. synonyms that have been assigned the status accepted or preferred. You can also assign the status of prohibited to terms with a different significance, for instance terms that are not allowed in your corporate communications.
Add language on the right beneath the text entry lets you assign any number of other languages to the term. These words are also terms in their own right and have their own term overview, which you can use to add information and attributes in the same way as described above.
