I am currently investigating online CAT tools, and am wondering if any of them support synonyms in termbases?

In my CAT tool, CafeTran, e.g., you can add synonyms to an entry simply by separating terms with semi colons, thus:

cat = kat;poes;poesje

Can XTM Cloud to this, or do you need to create a separate entry for each synonym (like in DejaVu, and other CAT tools with poor synonym handling)?

Also, do you know of any other online CAT tools that can handle synonyms?

Terminology in XTM Aug 18, 2015

Dear Michael,

Thank you for your enquiry. Terminology in XTM is concept based, so a single concept such as 'cat' can have multiple entries.
