How to search a MultiTerm termbase within Trados Studio (by Jayne Fox)

How to search a MultiTerm termbase within Trados Studio (by Jayne Fox) | Translation & Terminology | Scoop.it
" Do you translate using Trados Studio? Do you know how to search a MultiTerm termbase within Studio? Read on to learn more. I’m a huge fan of terminology databases and use them for all my translation projects. I find that a good termbase helps me to translate faster, because it enables me to insert terms into my translation very easily. As well as storing complex terms, I also add frequently used terms to my termbase, to make sure that I’m using them consistently throughout my translation. I agree with Jost Zetzsche’s comment on the value of termbases, made during one of his recent webinars: “If I had to choose between giving up all of my translation memory data or all of my terminology data, I would always give up my translation memory data rather than ..."

Defining what we use everyday: words

Defining what we use everyday: words | Translation & Terminology | Scoop.it
Everyone of us uses words every day, but yet we can hardly explain what a word is. Even linguists have given different explanations, which are not entirely incorrect but it seems they cannot be applied universally. It is usually said that, on the one hand, a word is something that expresses different meanings. Yet, on the other hand, there are 'multi-words' which can express one meaning all together. Moreover, a word is defined as an element characterized by phonological, graphical and morphological cohesion. Bear with me, let's try and deepen that definition.
