Generating Term Summaries

When creating summaries, the order of the selected categories is also especially important, as the analysis of the terminology stock takes place hierarchically: The terminology stock is first analyzed on the basis of the first category, then on the basis of the second category, and so on. For example, if you create a term summary with the Status and Language categories, the crossTerm inventory is first evaluated according to the status of the terms. For each of the two status values, the crossTerm stock will thus be analyzed for the number of terms by languages.

  1. Proceed as follows:
  2. In the crossTerm Manager, select the menu item Tools > Summaries.
