The only way I have found to add new term pairs to the CrossTerm termbase during translation is the following: Alt+1 (to call CrossTerm Manager), Ctrl+Q (Quick Add Terms), manually enter source term in source field, manually enter target term in target field and press Save new terms button.

Nearly all other tools I know have a shortcut to select the source and target terms that are right in front of you in the translation editor and send the term pair to the glossary/termbase, without having to type them in a second time. Is there really no way to do this in Across? Or am I missing (again) something obvious?

Hi Dominique,

select the source text term. Select the target text term in the editor window and press SHIFT+ALT+1. crossTerm will open and you can add additional information to both terms. Press Save&Close for each term and you are done.

Thanks! Feb 21, 2016

Thanks, Martina! Exactly what I was looking for. I wouldn’t have thought of selecting the target term in the editor pane. At least the shortcut is visible when you right click on a selected word in the source column.
