Creating special terms

Special terms are phrases to be excluded from machine translations.

To define special terms, go to project's SOURCE page. Under the SPECIAL TERMS tab, click Create special terms.

A card will appear on the screen. In the card, enter a name for the special terms.

Upload a CSV file to import sentence pairs for the special terms (ensure the file is formatted correctly). Please note that this step is optional.

Once the information for the special terms have been input, click Create.

There are two ways to add sentence pairs for the special terms.

The first way is to import sentence pairs from a CSV file. In the special terms, click Import pairs.

A card will appear on the screen. In the card, upload a CSV file containing sentence pairs (ensure the file is formatted correctly).

Once the CSV file has been uploaded, click Preview & import.

The special terms will show a preview of the sentence pairs contained in the CSV file. Once the sentence pairs have been previewed, click Import (X) pairs.


The second way to add sentence pairs for the special terms is to manually create matching pairs in the source and target language.

To manually add sentence pairs, click Add pairs.

A popup will appear on the screen. In the popup, enter the desired phrase in the source language and target language.

Once the phrases have been input, click Add (X).
