In other CAT tools (Deja Vu, Transit TermStar, Trados Multiterm) I can create several terminology databases, rename, copy and save them to other locations, edit these databases with other programs. But I can not find out if it is applicable in crossTerm.

The basic question: can I have several crossTerm databases?

The concept of cross term is a bit different. Eveything is in one glossary. While you can for example add the electronic Langenscheidt dictionaries, you can also add your terms.

In my opinion, the crossterm concept is a lot better than MultiTerm.

Only one glossary

So, I can not create separate terminology databases for projects or clients. In that case, even Multiterm is better. But my favourite is Deja Vu's Terminology Database.

Across has a different concept Jul 20, 2008

I am still learning this tool, but I think it has a fundamentally different concept for differentiating between TM and glossary entries that belong to different clients.
In each entry (both in CrossTank and CrossTerm), there are many fields, such as Project, Relation, etc.
I think Relation is where you supposed to put the client's name, and further specify it in Project. Then, you can use filters while you are using or exporting the entries. That way, if you need to, you can create (export) the entries that belong to a specific project.
