memoQ 8: Add Term


Allows you to create a new term base entry in the TB selected as the target for new terms.

  • If you have selected a word or an expression in a source segment when activating Add Term, it will populate the source language field automatically.
    If you have selected a word or an expression in a target segment when activating Add Term, it will populate the target language field automatically.
    You can make selections in both source and target fields simultaneously, or no selection at all.
  • Note that unless your terms are proper nouns or abbreviations, all terms should be in lower case.
  • To add, edit or delete entries, use the blue plus, orange box or red minus buttons. You can also add alternative terms.
  • Default shortcut key: Ctrl+E.
You can and should add a variety of data with your term entry:
  • The entry-level data covers the whole term entry. The metadata will be automatically copied from the project and will rarely need editing. You can add a Note if the term entry requires additional information.
  • Among the term-specific data, the match setting and case sensitivity settings on the Matching tab is the most important and must be set immediately.
  • Under Usage, you can enter a usage example. You can also tick a box to make the term forbidden.
  • Under Grammar, you can set the part of speech, genus and numerus of a term, if it is required for understanding.
  • Under Definition, you can enter a definition of the term. Note that this information is specific for the term in that language, while entry-level Notes cover the whole entry.
