Glossary Actions

  • Import glossary Imports glossary as a sheet
  • Export glossary Exports glossary from a sheet

To utilize the Export glossary action, ensure that the Google sheet mirrors the structure obtained from the Import glossary action result. Follow these guidelines:

  • Sheet structure:
    • The first row serves as column names, representing properties of the glossary entity: ID, Definition, Subject field, Notes, Term (language code), Variations (language code), Notes (language code).
    • Include columns for each language present in the glossary. For instance, if the glossary includes English and Spanish, the column names will be: ID, Definition, Subject field, Notes, Term (en), Variations (en), Notes (en), Term (es), Variations (es), Notes (es).
  • Optional fields:
    • Definition, Subject field, Notes, Variations (language code), Notes (language code) are optional and can be left empty.
  • Main term and synonyms:
    • Term (language code) represents the primary term in the specified language for the glossary.
    • Variations (language code) includes synonymous values for the term.
  • Notes handing:
    • Notes in the Notes column should be separated by ’;’ if there are multiple notes for a given entry.
  • Variations handling:
    • Variations in the Variations (language code) column should be separated by ’;’ if there are multiple variations for a given term.
  • Terms notes format:
    • Each note in the Notes (language code) column should follow this structure: Term or variation: note.
    • Notes for terms should be separated by ’;;‘. For example, ‘money: may refer to physical or banked currency;; cash: refers to physical currency.’
