We encounter different categories of information that are stored in the termbases, depending on the company in question. This is because the previous systems required certain data structures that are firmly embedded in the company’s terminology and which have now become indispensable in many cases.
With the new individual attributes in Lexeri, you can now model all attributes that you have historically maintained in your termbases or glossaries – without any compromises whatsoever.
To do so, you can simply define individual, nuanced attributes in Lexeri in addition to the standard attributes when configuring your termbase.
You will find the new settings in the ‘Entry Structure’ section of your database settings.
You can add two types of attribute: Free text boxes or selection lists.
Free text boxes
When dealing with free text boxes, you can select whether to use a multi-line input box (e.g. for a more detailed description) or a single-line text.
You can define the attribute in more detail by adding a title and an optional description.
When dealing with selection list attributes, you can define a list with selection options from which you make a selection when editing the term entry or the term.
Depending on your configuration, the attributes added to the term or the term entry section in the termbase are now shown and can be edited by the terminology manager directly in the entry, just like with standard attributes.
