Dear,


Please, could you tell me how to add synonyms for the same word in a single form, in SDL Multiterm Desktop 2011 ?

Create multiple forms, then merge them? Is there another way to do it directly?

Thank you.


Best regards

MultiTerm is concept based, so you should add a new Term for the language that the synonym exists in. Look at the Sample termbase which comes with MultiTerm. There, the German term "Fotodrucker" has 2 English synonyms, "photo printer" and "photo-printer".

Thank you Roger.


I have the freelancer edition, and I do not have German in my 5 languages.

So, I can't look at this.

I would like to write one word below another a.s.o.

Without picture, it is hard to explain it.


Regards.

I do it from within Studio Jul 28, 2013

In my projects, using a termbase I will have the term recognition window open. As I come across a term I highlight it on both the source and target and right click. then on the pull-down menu I select Add term (or something like that, I don't exactly remember what the menu says). If it already exists the program will tell me so and ask if I want to merge them. If I say yes it is added and then I click save.

On the other hand, If I see one I want to add, from the Term Recognition window, I right click on the term which calls up a mini menu. I select View term deatils which brings up the term in the Termbase Viewer. At the top of the Termbase Viewer I fouble click on the pencil which lets me edit the term. Then Next to the source and target languages there is a downward pointing triangle. If I select them I can add an additional term. Then of course hit save.

Hope that helps

Thank you very much Eileen.


I have known it with Studio.


Please, is there no way to do the same thing directly within Multiterm ?

Sergei - how did you add the figure in multiterm? That is pretty cool, first time I've seen that.

It's simple Jul 29, 2013

You can add one image in the general part of a term entry
There is a dropdown list in the top of the entry window
When open it shows 'Note', 'Subject', 'Mainpic', and 'Status'.

Clicking 'Mainpic' opens the field to choose an image file.

This image will be a common picture for all language entries/the term

In addition you can add images (several) for each language term by opening dropdown menu (see the screenshot).

Images will follow
