They say the MultiTerm termbase model is concept- rather than term-based. This means that there is always a one-to-one
correspondence between a concept and the corresponding entry, although an entry may contain multiple terms. All terms
in the same entry represent a single concept, and terms can be added in any number of languages. The termbase can be searched in any language direction.

Now, to fully get the point, I'd like to hear your opinions, comments, explanations, examples, elaborations on the core point here, ie "Concept-Oriented & term-based". How would it be different if the program was term-based? To put it simpler, I'd like to have a clear image of the differences between the program in concept-oriented mood and in term-based mood respectively. Thanks a lot in advance for sharing your knowledge.
