How can I QA for terms consistency while allowing different target terms at the same time?

So, source = einfahren and target can be either intrekken or inschuiven or inrijden. All alternative target terms should be allowed, meaning: not reporting false positives.

If all these target terms are entered as translations at the highest level (meaning: all target terms are equal), will they be accepted automatically during QA?

Only terms with the status "forbidden" will be flagged Jul 26, 2016

QA for terminology is done using the function "Terminology Verifier". This function will only issue a warning when the target text contains a term with a status field = "forbidden" (or whatever you have defined in the Terminology Verifier settings).
This means that it will not flag synonyms if they all have a status "approved" ((or whatever you have defined in the Terminology Verifier settings).

false positives are unavoidable Jul 27, 2016

I don't think there is a way to avoid false positives in this case. You're telling the system to flag instances where such target terms aren't used, and that's exactly what it does.

Unless your glossary allows different target translations for one source term with the condition "or", which I don't think is possible with Multiterm. Is this correct? Anyone?
