When creating a glossary, you can specify the case sensitivity type that will help our platform understand how exactly should the terms be recognized in the text. Please refer to the screenshot below to see the full list of case sensitivity types:
As Typed — This type is "on" by default, meaning that Intento will search for the term in the translated text based on how it is added to your glossary. For example, if you enter "HellO wOrld" as a source term and "BonjoUr MOnde" as the target term, the translation will be applied only if your text has the exact match of "HellO wOrld", other variants won't be recognized.
Regular Case — When you select this type of case sensitivity, Intento looks for the source matches that are written in lowercase or start with a capital letter: for example, the term "hello world" will be applied as "hello world" or "Hello World". We also support exact matching with the glossary entry spelling so "Hello World" will be recognized and the glossary term will be applied.
Upper Case — The terms are recognized in the source text if they are uppercase: for the same term, "HELLO WORLD. "Hello World" won't be recognized and the glossary won't be applied.
Lowercase — If the term is written in lowercase, it will be recognized and applied exactly in lowercase, the same "hello world" will turn into "bonjour monde".
Please note that you can change case sensitivity type not only on a glossary level but also on a per-term basis. Moreover, you can suggest your own way to recognize the term. In the example below you can see how exactly you can set up various ways to recognize the source term in the text:
+ Add custom variant
How the term will be identified in the text
The source text cannot be different in custom variant.
