Localazy Tutorial - Glossary, step 1

Term in source language

Enter your desired term to be defined in the glossary.

Term description

Enter the description of the term to be defined. You can also describe the context within the application as your glossary is private and connected to your app only.

Translate checkbox

Please decide whether your term must be translated or kept as is.

For example, the brand name is not translated in many cases and you might want to protect it against unwanted translation by use of glossary.

Case sensitivity checkbox

Please decide whether your term matching is case-sensitive or not.

For example, the term “Booking” will be matched with glossary only if translation phrases include exact match “Booking”. Term “booking” will not be matched by the glossary.
