TermStar

Flexible integration and migration

Flexible data models, multiple database support, powerful import and export functions, and convenient terminology extraction: Because of these functions, TermStar is suitable for all terminological applications, databases, and IT landscapes. TermStar is ready for tomorrow's demands.

Physically separated, virtually united

TermStar supports multiple databases and different database servers (e.g., MS SQL, Oracle, IBM DB2, MySQL)―and it can do so simultaneously.
This way, TermStar runs smoothly in the client-side IT infrastructure and fulfills client-specific database preferences and requirements.
Further advantages: Terminology databases in different divisions, locations, or departments can be stored in physically separate databases but be used together nonetheless.
This way, you can access the exact terminology relevant to each of your projects, whether or not it is saved in your physical location or file format.

Comprehensive and flexible: The TermStar data model

The TermStar data model consists of a predefined set of more than 10 entry types and over 40 entry fields, all of which can be individually adapted and used.
Whenever you begin terminology work, you simply use the entry types and fields that are relevant. Therefore, you do not have to start from scratch, rather you can benefit from a time-tested data model.
If you already have a complex terminology management system and comprehensive terminology databases, then you can tap the full potential of the data model and adapt it to your individual requirements.
If you are somewhere in between, the TermStar data model is still suitable: It grows flexibly with your individual requirements.

Multimedia for the right word

“A picture is worth a thousand words”—this is true for dictionaries too: An image, a CAD drawing, or a video can get ideas across faster and more clearly than long definitions—and they are language independent.
TermStar supports numerous multimedia file formats and displays them data-record specifically in the integrated multimedia viewer.

Use what is available: Glossaries, lists, Excel...

Glossaries, Word lists, Excel tables, TBX, individual formats: Using flexible importing, you can transfer your existing terminology databases into TermStar and merge them. Do all this while being supported by a simple, step-by-step wizard.
You can reach your goal quickly even if you have little experience in terminology management.

Create new content quickly: Terminology extraction

Even if you have never worked with terminology before, you can quickly and easily create a foundation of terminology using TermStar and Transit: The user-friendly term extractor identifies possible dictionary entries in your translation project and generates a populated dictionary with just a few clicks of the mouse.

Allow others to benefit

So that downstream systems benefit from the terminology in TermStar as well, TermStar supports an array of export formats (e.g., TBX, MARTIF, Excel, CSV, and others).
Supported by wizards, you can choose exactly what to export and how. This way, you can deliver the exact terminology and formats that are needed.
