Compatible languages

Some languages do not change the shape of a word based on sentence context. With these languages, applying a custom terminology is most likely to improve overall translation quality. However, some languages do have extensive word shape changes. We do not recommend applying the custom terminology feature to those languages, but we do not restrict you from doing so.
