Term bases (TBs) contain terminology. They are collections of entries that have expressions in various languages. An entry represents an object or a concepts, and contains its name or names in several languages. In addition, a term base entry can have a definition, an example, and an image, as well as many other details about the object and also about the terms.

A term base is multilingual: One term base can work with all languages in a project, even if the project has two or more target languages. The term base must include every language of the project. If you add a term base to the project, memoQ will add missing languages.
