Would this be somehow possible? I am working on a translation with "codes" consisting of terms separated by hyphens, e.g. "CUSTOMER-DATA-QUERY". Some of these consist of many terms, but the used terms are mainly the same, just in different combination. Translating these one-by-one is quite time consuming, when it would be very fast and convenient to save the individual terms separately into the glossary (i.e. CUSTOMER, DATA, QUERY) and use then the terminology setting "Copy only target terms" to create the actual code. I haven't been able to find any info about this nor have I been able to solve it myself. Any ideas?
