Properties and structure of glossary

Glossary properties are the settings such as languages, labels and comments. To change these, go to Linguistic assetsGlossaries, click on the gear icon, and select Glossary properties.

Make the necessary changes and hit the Save button.

Glossary structure is made of fields you can add or remove. To change the glossary structure, for example adjust additional glossary fields, go to Linguistic assetsGlossaries, click on the gear icon, and select Glossary structure.

The glossary structure settings allow you to create System fields used for glossary levels: Position, Language, and Term.

The glossary structure has three levels — Position (or entry), Language, and Term

The Position level defines the properties of a whole glossary entry.
The Language level relates to the properties of the language of a glossary term (click on the language to open).
The Term level determines the properties of a term itself. There might be more than one term per language for a glossary entry (click on the term to open).

This is helpful if, for example, you want to add a translated definition for each language or if you have multiple translations for an entry and want to add information at the term level. 

You can add fields at every level using the Level drop-down box. At each level, there will be fields available, some will repeat between levels. Choose the field you want to add and click Add to List. The selected fields will appear in the bottom list . When you are done, click on Save (5).

You can also create a Custom Field for each level as well, set unique properties for it.

Choose a unique field name, the type of data that will be entered — text, number, Y/N, etc. — a default value if needed, comment and check if this will be a required field.
