Q. Why can I submit suggestions for some terms, but not others?
A. Terms that have a lock icon next to them on the Glossary page have been locked by Microsoft. Additional translation suggestions are not accepted for locked terms. However, you may still view all suggestions that were submitted.
Q. I want the Glossary page to list only terms that haven't been locked. How do I do that?
A. From the Filter By drop-down list on the right-hand side of the alphanumeric navigation bar, choose Unlocked and click then Go. The Glossary page will refresh and list only the terms beginning with the selected letter that have not been locked. The filter you choose (Locked, Unlocked, Some Suggestions, New Suggestions, No Suggestions, or no filter) will remain in effect until you change it by making a new choice from the Filter By list.
Q. Why must I choose a display name to work on Microsoft Terminology Community Forum?
A. The translation suggestions you submit are attributed to you by using your display name. Other users will see your display name listed next to your translation suggestions, so be careful about including any personally identifying information (such as your real name) when choosing a display name. Your display name will also be listed on the About This Project page if you submit any translation suggestions.
Q. Will you pay me for my translation suggestions?
A. No. This project is entirely voluntary. It involves no payment or compensation of any kind.
