In Studio 2014, is there a way to customize the way the program identifies what termbase entries are relevant to a given segment so that certain characters are considered interchangeable? For instance, in Hebrew and Arabic some letters have multiple forms, and these should be treated similarly. For another example, inconsistency and incorrect use of punctuation make it desirable that spaces, hyphens, and en dashes be considered identical by the term-finding engine. To flesh out the examples, if my termbase contained the entry "verb it," I would want this term to be suggested for a segment containing the term "verb-it."

Also, is there a way to have the program disregard specified grammatical prefixes and suffixes in determining whether a term is relevant to a given segment? For instance, if my termbase contained "verb," I would want this to be suggested for segments containing "preverb" and "postverb."

Thanks very much in advance.
