The term requests feature allows users in particular to submit suggestions for new termbase terms in Lexeri.
Colleagues who conduct daily research in the termbases and use the terminology to create texts can be extremely helpful to identify the actual need for new terms and build terminology in a targeted manner.
Term requests are a simple and unbureaucratic way of sending requests for new terms to the terminology manager , who then decides what happens next, assesses the relevance of the proposed term and then either enters the term directly in the database or uses it to create a new term task.
To create a new term request, go to the Term requests & tasks area in the navigation bar at the top.
This opens a term request board.
Now select Create request to open the entry form and create a new term request.
The entry form opens.
Now go to the top and enter the term you wish to suggest.
Use the description section to explain why you feel the entry is important or is missing in the termbase, along with the context in which you encountered the term (e.g. a snippet of the accompanying text).
Then click on Save to submit your request to the terminology manager, who will see it under New term requests in their Term request board. The terminology manager then reviews the request and decides on how to proceed with the term request.
As the user, you will see the submitted term request under Pending term requests in your term request board, where you can track the request status and will see whether the term was added to the termbase.
If the terminology manager accepts the request, it moves to the right-hand column of the term request board, where it is shown under Accepted requests. But the term request disappears entirely from the user’s term request board if the suggestion is rejected by the terminology manager.
