How to get here

  • Go to Settings and search for Terminology Management.

  • Use Configure to access the Customization page of Terminology management and TBX.

  • Go to Access rights > Custom field and click on Configure custom fields.

Create a custom field

In the Customization screen, open the Segments tab to define additional input fields for your translation memories and terminology databases. The fields are shown when clicking a segment in the translation editor. You can create up to 20 custom fields per category.

Use Add to create a new custom field. The Edit custom field screen opens. Name your custom field and fill in a description, if necessary. Further, you can customize the field as follows.

  • Select the resource type where you want the custom field to appear: Translation/Project memories, Terminology databases, Both.

  • Select the field type: Text field, Pick list, Hyperlink, Image, Checkbox

  • Indicate whether the field is mandatory or not.

  • Indicate where the custom field can be searched for: Translation editor, Global Search, on top, or Global Search, side bar.

  • Indicate whether the custom field should be displayed in the hits of the Translation Finder

  • Set access rights for internal users: hidden, can view, can edit.

  • Set access rights for external users: hidden, can view, can edit.

  • Indicate whether the custom field should be attached to segment, language or both.

  • Click OK to save the changes.

Wordbee automatically assigns the custom field an internal custom field ID for advanced use cases. As soon as you click OK, the custom field is listed in the Custom Fields for Segments. You can now add an illustration to your terminological entries.

You have successfully created the custom field but you still need to define it as a valid tbx field. To do so go to Settings > TBX fields.

In the new window you now need to push the custom field on concept or term level to the working template.
​If you then reopen your term base you should be able to see it on concept and/or term level (whatever you have selected above).
