Term Metadata in a Term Base

Every term in a term base has a list of attributes that can be exported to or imported from TMX or Excel files. Some of these attributes can be edited directly in the term's setting or edited externally in the Excel or TMX file.

Note: The attributes of a term base (Client, Domain, etc.) have no effect on the individual term's attributes.
