Terminology in XTM Workbench

XTM Workbench includes a dedicated Terminology docked panel.

XTM Cloud also contains a separate Terminology module.

XTM Workbench can display all source terms recognized in an active segment together with their translations for the target language. The figure in brackets in the Terminology tab indicates the number of terms recognized in the active segment.
