Terminology management

From Wordfast Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Terminology management software provides the translator a means of automatically searching a given terminology database for terms appearing in a document, either by automatically displaying terms in the translation memory software interface window or through the use of hot keys to view the entry in the terminology database. Some programs have other hotkey combinations allowing the translator to add new terminology pairs to the terminology database on the fly during translation. Some of the more advanced systems enable translators to check, either interactively or in batch mode, if the correct source/target term combination has been used within and across the translation memory segments in a given project.

There are several built-in Terminology Management[2] features in Wordfast Classic[3], Wordfast Pro and Wordfast Anywhere.
