Exporting Terminology

  1. Proceed as follows:
  2. Open the crossTerm Manager and click icn_wiz_cTerm-export-wizard.
  3. Once the wizard has started, click Next.
  4. Select an export format.
  5. In the next step, select a location and a name for the export file and select an export template if necessary.
  6. Click Next.
  7. Now select the crossTerm instance which you want to export data from.
  8. If required, specify that only the terminology that exists as a language pair is exported and select the source language for it.
  9. If you also want to export standalone entries, select the corresponding checkbox.
    Tip

    If you only want to export standalone entries, it is sufficient not to select any language in the selection of the languages to be exported. You can set filters (in the following step) to export particular standalone entries.

  10. Click Next.
  11. Use different, combinable filters to limit the entries to be exported as required.
  12. Once you have made all the settings, click Next.
  13. Select the languages for which you want to export the entries.
    Attention

    If you activated the option for exporting language pairs, the application will not display any languages, but the language pairs with the source language selected.

  14. Use the icn_cTeM_reihenfolge-anpassen_runter and icn_cTeM_reihenfolge-anpassen_hoch icons to sort the languages in the order in which they are to be exported.
  15. Click Next.

    If you have selected a TBX export, a dialog with additional export options appears.

    Select the requested options and click Export to start the TBX export and to finalize.

    For the CSV export you have further possibilities.

  16. Select the information to be exported on entry level.
  17. Use the icn_cTeM_reihenfolge-anpassen_runter and icn_cTeM_reihenfolge-anpassen_hoch icons to sort these details in the order in which they are to be exported.
    Tip

    If you intend to re-import the exported terminology data later on, we recommend including the entry GUIDs in the export, as these will greatly facilitate the subsequent re-import to Across.

    If you activate the export of the term GUIDs, the export of the entry GUIDs will automatically be activated in the next wizard step, as a unique mapping of the terminology data during re-import is only possible with both GUIDs (entry GUID and term GUID).

  18. Click Next.
  19. Select the term properties to be exported.
  20. Use the icn_cTeM_reihenfolge-anpassen_runter and icn_cTeM_reihenfolge-anpassen_hoch icons to sort these details in the order in which they are to be exported.
  21. Click Next.
  22. Set the character used as a delimiter for the separate information to be exported.
  23. Click Next.
  24. Specify whether the crossTerm entries are to be exported as a whole.
    Attention

    Please note that if the option is activated, the crossTerm entries will be exported with all terms existing for the respective entries in the languages to be exported. Synonyms, for example, will also be exported. Thus, any export limitations that you made in the preceding steps of the crossTerm Export Wizard may no longer fully apply.

  25. If you want to export the same data (or other data with the same entry structures and data categories) later on, save the settings into an export template.
  26. Click Export to start the export of the crossTerm entries.

    The export of the crossTerm entries begins.

    If there are no terms to be exported due to languages and/or filters selected, a corresponding message will be displayed.

  27. In this case, click OK and start the export with adjusted language and filter settings anew.
  28. Upon completion of the export, click Finish.
  29. The desired crossTerm entries have been exported.
