What is a Term Base?

What is a Term Base?

A term base or glossary is a database containing single words or expressions related to a specific subject. Terms in term bases are often bilingual or even multilingual. 

How Does it Work?

Term base is an integrated feature in memoQ translator pro, translation software. You may import existing glossaries, and add/update terms as you translate. You can combine several bilingual glossaries into multilingual ones, and mark forbidden terms.
