Personally, I don't see why you would want to do this: if you change the subject area to "insurance" on ALL entries of your tremble, this means you would not need this distinctive field anymore because all entries pertain to the same subject area anyway. Or am I missing something?
Inspried by another thread here on Proz, I'm thinking about merging all my termbases to a single big one - at the moment, I am using several termbases divided by subject area which do not contain any entry field indicating the latter. Using only one termbase instead of several smaller ones might be beneficial in terms of speed and handiness. But in order to do so, there must be a field which clearly indicates the subject area, which is, alas, not the case at the moment.
What do you think? Is it a good idea to consolidate the termbases?
If you need to modify data for a batch of entries, you can do this by exporting the entries and modifying the data when reimporting into a new copy of the tremble. You may also use Glossary Converter for this, so you can make the changes in Excel where this is easier and then reimport.
Thank you for your explanation. I will definitely try this.
