Business units provide an additional customization of rights and possibly even division of users into separate groups (sub-organizations/departments within a single Memsource account).
As opposed the Client metadata field (used to limit user rights to certain resources before the introduction of Business Units), multiple Business Units can be selected to provide access to more than one area within the account.
Currently, user rights can be restricted for the following three categories:
- Project Templates
- Translation Memories
- Term Bases
Business units can also be combined to provide all kinds of setups needed.
This functionality is available in the Ultimate and Enterprise editions.
