Dear Colleagues,

I am wondering if it is possible to select the destination termbase in Termbase Viewer pane when you add a new term entry during translation. I usually use more than one termbase and in certain cases (e.g. texts with combined topics) it would be really useful to put terms in a termbase other than "default".

At the moment I flag the term entries (by Subject) and after translation I separate them in Multiterm. But it is quite consuming.

Any better ideas?

If you opened Multiterm Desktop and as many termbases as you needed
and then some,
you could add/remove terms easily within all of these TBs
(edits will only take effect the next time you open the file.)

Moreover, you could do so freely,
without having to select anything first, in both source and target,
nor having to select these items in full
(e.g. a plural when all you want is the singular.)
