TippyTerm® works with all text-oriented Windows applications. At the press of a button, valid terms can be inserted directly at the cursor position into any software that allows text input via clipboard. Thus, for example, coherent terminology checks and corrections are possible within the Microsoft Office family, as well as directly in the creation of parts lists, drawings, presentations, websites and much more.
Thanks to the integrated author support, the list of selectable terms changes during input into the input box of the TippyTerm® bar– only terms containing the typed string are displayed. This ensures the searched term is found quickly and easily, and can be inserted at the cursor position.
TippyTerm® is deliberately term-oriented. By capturing further information on a term, such as abbreviation and description, as well as linking to other terms, files and/or websites, concept orientated work is possible.
To fill the terminology, TippyTerm® offers the following functions:
Import: Import of existing whitelists, blacklists or complete lists formatted as text (columns separated by semicolon), Word or Excel.
Edit: Manual entry of allowed and non-allowed terms and their additional information (description, reason for prohibition, translations).
TermExtract: Automatic extraction of words from a document (text or Word format) which are not contained in a so-called stopword list. This method is also recommended for the final control of documents on different spellings of the used words.
Translation: Import of translation lists and creating language assignments between allowed terms.
Export: Export the current terminology to .csv and .xls files. These can be imported by means of import, and thus form a simple interface between users who do not access the same database.
TippyTerm® offers a two-level access concept: You can define customers and assign them to responsible persons who are able to immediately maintain the terminologies of their customers. For every customer, you can define several terminologies (context), so that you can handle special cases as well. This makes it possible to manage terminologies by different responsible persons, e.g. for different customers or business units – without losing sight of them.
The whitelist consists of allowed terms, optionally with abbreviation and description, as well as additional fields, if defined.
The blacklist consists of non-allowed terms with their allowed terms, optionally with a non-allowed abbreviation and a description stating why the entry is not allowed.
The complete list combines both lists. Its structure corresponds to the blacklist, but the list contains additional lines with allowed terms.
You can add links to files into the description field of a term, as well as links to internet pages and to other entries in the terminology list. Direct integration of files is not possible.
Yes, TippyTerm® is Unicode-capable and supports terminology management for all languages, including languages that do not use the Latin alphabet, e.g. Greek, Cyrillic, Chinese, etc. The only prerequisite is that Arial Unicode MS is installed on your PC.
Yes, terms can be created in several languages. Assigning allowed terms between different languages (“translation”) is performed manually or by importing translation lists.
Yes. In the selection list of the TippyTerm® bar, all the translations and other accompanying information stored for a term are displayed using the F1 function.
TippyTerm® has a built-in workflow: All users can make suggestions for whitelists and blacklists of any terminology, using the TippyTerm® bar, TermExtract or the “Keyword” section. TippyTerm® shows the suggestions to the respective responsible persons, who can now directly accept, correct or delete the suggestions.
Yes, multiple simultaneous access is possible. Changes to the database are immediately available to users.
The database should not be copied to each computer, if several users are to use the same terminology. The database will typically be available as a file on the file system and be available to all users. Users must have write access.
No, because TippyTerm® is not web-based. But, we have provided tutorials for you: https://www.youtube.com/user/SysKonGmbH
- Pentium 266 MHz or higher
- Operating system: Microsoft Windows 2000, XP incl. x64 Edition, Vista, 7 to 10 (32 and 64 Bit)
- Main memory: 64 MB RAM
- Hard disk: At least 40 MB (depends on the size of your database)
- User write access to HKEY Current User (HKCU) in the registry
An update is usually done by replacing the EXE file. The database is not overwritten. If the update is carried out by reinstallation, the installation of a new database can be rejected. In both cases, the previous data are available in the new version one-to-one.
The TippyTerm® database is installed with TippyTerm® and can then be filled immediately via suggestion for users, and for responsible persons via the functions Edit, TermExtract or Import). No further database is required or accepted.
