Requirements: Enterprise subscription, or Pro Translation bolt-on.



Termbases are a critical part of modern translation workflows. They allow for consistency of translation across multiple languages.

CaptionHub has simple termbase support. You need to upload your termbase to CaptionHub, and then attach it to a project. Once it's attached to a project, it'll be pre-applied for Machine Translation (currently only via Amazon Translate), and it'll also be highlighted in the UI for your linguists.


Prepare your termbase for CaptionHub

CaptionHub only supports termbases uploaded in CSV format. Your CSV needs to have at least three columns. The first column needs to be labelled "Entry_ID"; and the remaining columns need to be labelled with the ISO codes corresponding to the languages in your term base. Therefore a termbase with English (United Kingdom) and French (France) should be formatted  like this:


You can continue to add extra columns to the CSV, for multilingual termbases.


Creating a termbase

  1. Navigate to the Translation Tools tab in Team Settings
  2. Give your termbase a name, and choose the language that your termbase contains
  3. Click "Create termbase"
  4. When your termbase is created, you need to click on the "Import termbase" button
  5. Locate the CSV file you prepared earlier, and click on the "Import" button


Attaching a termbase to a project

  1. From the Project page, click on the drop down cog
  2. Choose "Attach termbases"
  3. Select the termbase(s) you'd like to attach to your project, and click "Done"

Now, when you use Amazon Translate, or create blank translations, then the terms in your termbase will be pre-applied.



Termbases can be no larger than 10MB, and the maximum entry size is 200 bytes.
