SDL MultiTerm 2019


Features in SDL MultiTerm 2019

Batch editing functionality for global search and replace

Perform batch operations (the grouping of similar tasks that require similar resources) in order to maintain terminology databases more easily.


  • Ability to search/replace strings within a termbase is tied into optional field selection. i.e. replace all instances of string "x" with "y" where field = Definition.
  • Delete multiple entries that match a specific filter (a specific search criteria).
  • Delete specific term blocks in a language, i.e. delete all terms in German that are set to Status = Forbidden.
  • Ability to detect missing fields and field values, i.e. show all entries that don't have field x with the ability to then add those fields with the specified value.
  • Ability to delete a field based on value, i.e. delete Source field if value does not exist.
  • Extended to include the ability to use RegEx in searches where appropriate.

Support for more languages

Support for all new languages brought to you by Windows 8.1/10. This brings language support to an amazing 500+ languages and language flavors.

New modern layout in MultiTerm Desktop

  • The user experience is improved for managing terminology with a refreshed user interface, (more modern look) reducing a lot of double clicks in order to get things done, i.e. entering a field for editing, making common operations like deleting a field more intuitive.
  • Right click options are available for editing on-the-fly.

Enhanced Term Recognition and verification - for greater accuracy and stability.

Termbase Management
  • Batch Editing – Enabling you to perform global changes on your termbase content to make it easier to ensure the consistency of your terminology.
  • Fuzzy search – displays a list of corresponding entries that do not necessarily match the search term exactly (useful if the search term is transposed or misspelled).
  • Wildcard search – locate all terms that contain a specific string of characters.
  • Full text search – locate a word or phrase that may exist anywhere within the complete termbase, including within definition, example or context fields.
  • Multiple termbase search – locate a term that may exist in multiple termbases.
  • Homonym search – identify potential duplicates in your termbase.
  • ‘Hitlist’ search display allows customizable view of multiple fields as well as terms within search results.
  • Apply simple or advanced filters to the termbase for a more refined search or during the importing or exporting of terms.


  • SDL Trados Studio – SDL MultiTerm integrates with SDL Trados Studio through active term recognition. While translating, SDL Trados Studio will automatically flag up any terms that appear in the termbase and these can be inserted into the translation. It is also possible to add, edit and search for terms within the SDL Trados Studio environment without having to open SDL MultiTerm Desktop.
  • Microsoft® Word® – A dedicated toolbar integrated within Microsoft® Word® allows you to search, retrieve data from and add content to both local and remote termbases.
  • SDL Passolo – Integration with SDL Passolo software localization tool.
  • Other 3rd-party systems – Open API allows SDL MultiTerm to integrate functionality into proprietary tools.
