In addition to the standard TBX attributes, Lexeri allows you to define individual attributes that are relevant to your terminology.
This means you can model all information for your terminology entries in Lexeri that you previously maintained in other systems or file formats.
Adding individual attributes
Go to your termbase Settings to add individual attributes to your termbase.
Then select ‘Entry Structure’.
A form opens in which you can define the type of new attribute. Free text box or selection list.
Free text boxes
Attributes in the form of free text boxes are suitable for adding more detailed and descriptive information in continuous text form.
The standard attributes definition and usage hint are also free text boxes.
Initially select whether it is a multi-line input box or a single-line text in order to limit the length of the continuous text.
Clicking on ‘Next’ will open a form in which you can add a title and optional description to define the attribute in more detail.
You can also go to the bottom of the form and select whether the individually configured attribute should be shown in the term checks.
In this case you can filter the term check hit list to show terms with the specific attribute.
Then click on ‘Save’ to create the attribute with all the defined characteristics.
Selection attributes are suitable for adding identifying characteristics and categories – such as a subject area, tag or status – to terms or entries.
Like with free text boxes, the first step is to add a title and optionally a description to the attribute. Next you define a list with any number of selection options.
You can then select one or several values when editing the term or the entry.
With selection attributes, you can also determine whether the attribute should be shown in the termbase overview.
You can then filter them there directly in the termbase.
