The Synonyms settings determines how synonyms in entries are converted from and to spreadsheets. There are three formats:

  • No synonyms
    If an entry has more than one term per language, only the first one is used
  • Full support
    multiple terms are stored in one line, separated by a user defined character. Details are here: Synonyms
  • Multi-line format
    each synonym gets its own line. Not recommended, but popular, and therefore supported. Details here: Synonyms in multi-line format. Since the format needs to synchronise by a source language, you can specify one. If left empty, the first language is used. For termbases, that is a random language, so you'd better specify your source language here.
    You can choose if you want to repeat the source in case of multiple translations. If you select this option, your spreadsheet will look like this:

English

German

Comment

car

Auto


car

Wagen

colloquial


If you leave it unchecked, it'll look like this:

Comment
