1) The dictionaries and thesauruses

They enable you to organize your expressions.

A dictionary is characterized by a topic, a language and a boolean indicating whether it is a dictionary of exceptions or synonyms.

The dictionaries of exceptions comprise all the terms which may not be replaced and which thus appear as they are in the output text.

The dictionary management tool is accessible at any time. You can therefore work on your dictionaries at any time, regardless of the current project.

A dictionary may be associated with several projects. If you modify it, the changes apply to all the project associated with it.

You may associate three dictionaries with a project, knowing that only the first dictionary can be a dictionary of exceptions, the dictionaries being processed in order of priority.

A dictionary is processed by length, starting with the longest expressions and ending with the shortest.
For example if « spinning » and « software » are in a project dictionary and « spinning software » is also present, the latter expression is processed in place of the two separate expressions « spinning » and « software« .

 

2) Expressions and equivalents

A dictionary includes expressions.
These expressions comprise between one and eight words, the comma counting as a word.

When a dictionary is associated with a project and one of the expressions in this dictionary appears in the article text, the expression is colored. You may also easily determine the remaining expressions to be included in a dictionary if need be.

You may assign equivalents to an expression._Like their equivalents, these expressions comprise between one and eight words, the comma counting as a word.

 

3) The little extras

You can export and import entire dictionaries, expressions and their equivalents or simply the equivalents. Data is imported and exported in a tabulated text format encoded in utf-8.

You may select part of your text and include it either as an expression or as an equivalent.

You may switch between an expression and its equivalents in a single click.

You may select the expressions and/or the equivalents, which may not be used for all projects or for one project in particular. Details on this principle can be found in the chapter dedicated to exclusions.
