Our glossaries are compiled by our hardworking professional linguists, but they are only human and can make mistakes.
However, glossary suggestions can often turn out to be invalid. Here’s a couple of examples of when your glossary recommendation might not be accepted:
- The word or phrase in question isn’t to your personal taste. We all use language in different ways. If the entry is fine, but you personally wouldn’t write that way, then we’ll most likely go with the recommendation from the professional who designed the glossary.
- The specified word or phrase clearly forms part of a client’s branding or corporate language and does so without being detrimental to the text. In these instances, there will have been a discussion involving the client to decide which option to put into the glossary. Unless you’re certain that it decreases the quality of the language or hinders understanding, please don’t report it.
If you think you’ve found a glossary entry that you think is incorrect, please report it to us using the specifications detailed here.
