The Terminology tool is a way for users to access the Termbase, along with any metadata associated with the terms. Metadata typically is structured into relevant information for a given word regarding the part of speech, participle, case, as well as links to image context. To signify a suggestion is being pulled from the Term Base, the suggestion will appear in orange within the translation environment.
You can access this tool by selecting the sidebar option, and clicking the “Terminology” icon.
By default, the Terminology Search will populate with the full source segment which is active in the tool. You can modify this search as needed within the editable text box.
Searching Existing Terminology
Terms will appear in a list format with both source text and target text within the tool. Each of these items can be selected in order to view the metadata associated with it.
If you are searching for an item which has multiple variations within the Term Base, several options may appear in the target list. Depending on how thorough the Term Base uploaded into the Lilt Memory is, this functionality assists in selecting the best possible translation for the source content you are translating.
Adding New Terminology
This option is available to add any new terminology to the Term Base for future use and reference. Particularly useful when operating in teams, this is a powerful tool which will enable consistency.
When selecting this option in Lilt, you will be presented with an option to add the source text as well as the target text. Select the check mark to add the entry into the Term Base, or select “x” to discard.
