Trados Studio 2009 - Adding term to termbase

1. Select the source term
2. Select the target term
3. Right click on any selected term and click on Add new term (or assign a shortcut for this via Tools - Options - Keyboard Shortcuts or press Ctrl+F2 in Studio 2014)
4. Click on the auto hide icon (only for the first time you add a term)
5. Click on the Save icon or F12 (for some reason F12 does not work for me).
6. Move back to your text and continue translation (the add term pane will be hidden automatically)

It was tested that not only the F12 key does nothing when it comes to saving a term, but, also, that there is no Save this entry shortcut that could be manually assigned to this function. Meddling with shortcuts did not get me very far.

Here is a solution to add a term with one click (provided one has selected the source and target in Studio Editor).

You will have to use AutoHotkey, an external application. Here is the script, or use the attached one (you will have to install AutoHotkey for the script to work). The shortcut is Ctrl+9.

Code: [Select]

Adding a synonym

To add synonyms press F2 (Edit) while the Termbase Viewer is active, then click on the arrow of the target language and add a new synonym in the box, then press F12 (Save).

Για προσθήκη συνωνύμων πατάτε F2 ενώ είναι ενεργό το Termbase Viewer, μετά κλικ στο βελάκι του όρου στόχου και προσθήκη νέου, μετά πάτημα F12 (Αποθήκευση).
