Are there any users who have used different terminology systems extensively? I have only been using MultiTerm, but I know there are (possibly better) other systems, too, e.g. Lingo. I've been basically quite happy with MultiTerm (using it with Trados). Probably the only main problem is that the Trados window does not show all the terms found in the sentence at once, just the next one.

I would like to hear your opinions. I'm especially interested in easy integration into Trados & Word/Excel etc.

Lingo is excellent Jun 27, 2007

Jussi,

Hi. I have been using Lingo for about six months and am thoroughly satisfied with it. I find that termbases that come with CAT tools like SDLX and Wordfast are great for working, but they lack functionality when it comes to compiling a master termbase. Indeed, their purpose is not to be definitive, but rather functional.

To give you an example, I might enter the ES-EN pair: "se llevará a cabo" > "it shall be carried out" in the MemoQ termbase, but not in Lingo's because it is not an infinitive. I would only want to keep "llevar a cabo" > "to carry out/carry out" in my definitive termbase.

I would also want to add more fields (which you can easily do) to my Lingo termbase. I often want to know the definition of a term, where I found it, its domain and subdomain, what country it is used in most and if a specific translator used it, his or her name.

All of this can be done effortlessly in Lingo.

HTH

Reed

Thank you, Reed! Jul 13, 2007

Thanks for this brief review. I think I'll take a closer look at this Lingo.
