Identify Potential New Terms.
If Acrolinx finds new terms, they’ll show up here. Acrolinx reviews a document or set of documents, reporting on the terms that are used along with their frequency and variations. The Term Harvesting dashboard lets you quickly see which terms your writers use and how. Acrolinx automatically filters out duplicate terms or variants that you would otherwise have to validate manually. You can also export your candidates to add them to your terminology database.
To open the Term Harvesting dashboard, go to Analytics in the Acrolinx Dashboard. You'll find Term Harvesting under Guidance.
