Use Dictionaries to improve translation


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 LINK
2. If you have the term-base in Excel you can convert it to .TBX using Glossary Converter - 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.
