Hello, I work in the French-English direction and I have two questions concerning searches in the terminology database:
1. How can I ensure that the TB search window does not only show me the terms that begin with the word I have typed in the search bar but also those that contain this word. E.g.: if I search for the translation of "« vaccination obligatoire » (source) by typing "obligatoire" I am not offered anything and the message "No results available" appears. However, if I type "vaccination", the terms "vaccination", "vaccination obligatoire ", "etc" appear in my window. How can I activate this option?
2. And is there an option to search for terms from both my source and target language (i.e. English for me)? I would like the French word to appear when I type the term in English.
Thank you in advance for your reply.
Hi Charlotte Boucault,
Thank you for the clear explanation of your situation so that I can be able to advise further.

Please can you open your Project Settings and go to Termbases>Search Settings. In there check the settings you have, especially concerning the "minimum match value", if you can try and lower the percentage so that the search may cover a wider area of results.
I encourage you to have a play with the settings there, so that the results match the criteria you need in your terminology search:
In addition, the documentation also may be handy to further explore and see more details for the options:
Currently integrated terms search + term recognition is on source side. However, you can still see all the languages supported in theTermbase Viewer window, on the left side pane
Hope the above helps clarify things a bit more!
Thank you for your answer. It was clear for the first question. For the second one, I would like to know if there is a way to enter the target words to obtain all the source terms. Thats for people working in one way and the other. With your example is there a way to enter "trockenen Ort" to obtain "dry location and others terms if "trockenen Ort" has other entries.
Thanks in advance for your answer,
Hi CharlotteYou can search in any language combination simply by adjusting the source and language field before doing the search. If you set the search to be from German to French, you will get something like this:
and if you reverse it, something like this:You can set the search to any language that you have in your termbase. By definition, a termbase is not bilingual like a translation memory, but multilingual and you can at any time set the language direction you want to use. Also, concerning you first question related to searching for a string that is in the entry and not the term itself, you can set the type of search here:If you switch to "Recherche en texte intégral" MultiTerm will return all entries where your search string is contained anywhere in the entry (even in Notes).Try it out.
Thanks a lot for your precise answer. That's perfect!
Bonne journée à vous,
