Setting up a glossary while creating a project

Glossaries are an important translation resource. You can create and keep separate glossaries for different subjects and clients, and add terms with translations into other languages into them.

If a glossary is enabled on a project, whenever a glossary term is detected in the source text, the system will automatically offer the stored translations for that term.

Automatic glossary setup

If you specified a client or project group for the project, the system will automatically enable the relevant glossary from the ones that you have already created in Smartcat for this client or project group.

Manual glossary setup

You can change glossary settings on the Glossaries tab in the Advanced Settings.


Creating a glossary

To create a glossary and enable it on a project, press the Create button.


The new glossary will appear in the New glossaries area. To change the settings of this glossary, hover the cursor over it and click the pencil icon.

You can change the name of the new glossary, add languages, and select a client and project group.


After configuring the glossary, click Save.

Enabling an existing glossary

To enable a glossary previously created in Smartcat on your project, press the Select button.


In the window that opens, you will see a list of glossaries matching the language pair of your project. You can filter the glossaries by client and project group.


After selecting the glossaries, click Add.

Disabling a glossary

To disable a glossary being used on the project, hover the cursor over it and click the cross.
