BW Terminology provides tools for editing terms and translations, after they have been published. However, not all the user profiles might have direct access to that option (for a better understanding of roles and permissions, please read this article).
To allow those user to contribute more proactively with the evolution of company's terminology, BW provides them with the ability to flag terms.
Flagging a Term
By flagging a term the linguist (translator or reviewer) signals to the other users in the group, and to language managers, that a given translations requires some update. When flagging a term, the user can also add comments to explain the reason for the flagging.
Below are the steps for flagging a term:
1) Find the term you want to flag (Terminology > Search Terms) and select either "Flag all terms for review" or "Flag Selected Terms for Review" at the actions menu. See image below.
2) Provide comments on the reasons why you are flagging the term(s) and confirm. See image below.
After confirming, that translation will be displayed with an indication that someone flagged it, along with the comments when the user hovers the mouse over the flagging indication (image below).
Language managers will also get notified, in their dashboards, about terms that are flagged and thus require some action.
