1. What does termXact 2021 mean?

termXact 2021 is a check routine, that helps to use company specific terminology company-wide in a consistant way. The termXact-AddIn can be found in the menu bar of the respective editor that you are working with.

 

The special feature of termXact 2021 for Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Flare is that it checks the current data stock from your terminology database, if required, without first exporting an Excel check list which is integrated into termXact. Various scenarios are currently available for this:

If you would like to run your check directly against TBX data originating from the termXplorer terminology database, which is hosted by TermSolutions, we can provide you with an interface on request. In the configuration, you then enter the relevant parameters (url, user name and password) under Service, which we will provide you with when termXact is delivered. You can also check against TBX data that originate from other databases. To do this, we first convert your data into a checkable TBX format (termXplorer-TBX) before checking it with termXact. We currently offer this converter solution for the TBX dialects Across, MultiTerm and qTerm.

We offer the converter solution in two variants:

1.      as an integrated function in termXact 2021 (standard).

Here you select the desired TBX dialect in the configuration of termXact and load the file to be checked (TBX or XML). After the conversion, you only need to specify a few file-specific column names and values and can start the terminology check.

 

2.     as an outsourced converter (on request).

With this variant, the corresponding converter is located in the file system and we can automate the conversion process so that you do not have to trigger it manually and your data to be checked is always available to termXact at the desired time.

 

 

 

 

termXact 2021 License status

The new termXact version can connect to a license server of TermSolutions GmbH. This allows you to view the current license status at any time:

1. demo – active

2. demo – expired

3. single user licence – active

4. single user licence – server not accessible

5. licence is checked

 

It is still possible to purchase termXact 2021 as a company license without a connection to the license server. In the status area of the Add-In menu company license will appear.

 

This user manual describes the interface, the menu items and the handling of termXact 2021.

The terminology-checks are based on configuration settings that are carried out by a terminologie expert of your company. The settings are described separately in a configuration manual.
