How to create and add files to a dictionary in SDL Language Cloud?
Dictionaries improve the results from Language Cloud Machine Translation by using your own terms.
First, you need a subscription that has the Dictionary feature included.
Then you have to have a term-base or a glossary of terms.
In order to import your term-base you need to have it in .TBX format.
You can create this format in two ways:
1. If you are using SDL MultiTerm you can export a term-base directly in .TBX format see
How to export a termbase from MultiTerm to TBX for Language Cloud Dictionary
2. If you have the term-base in Excel you can convert it to .TBX using
- only available to users that have a Studio Licence in their account.
The Excel Glossary needs to have 2 columns, first row with the source and second row with the target language.
Just drag and drop the Excel glossary into Glossary Converter
You will get a .TBX file that you can upload in the Language Cloud Dictionary.
The dictionary created in Language Cloud can be applied in the online translator or in SDL Trados Studio.
