Term in the source language 🔗

Enter the term you want to define in the source language.

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.

Case sensitivity checkbox 🔗

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 an exact match “Booking”. The word “booking” will not be matched by the Glossary.

Translate checkbox 🔗

Decide whether this term should 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.
