Help test the terminology gadget!

Fragment of a discussion from Support

It's a great gadget indeed. However, it would be more helpful if a "category" feature is introduced into it.

For example, our current glossary table sort all terminologies by project.

If we can do it with the gadget, hopefully we can eventually replace this page with the terminology gadget's definition page, which can help avoid duplications (there are two glossary tables currently!) and out-of-sync content.

Thank you!

@Tranve: Sorry about the (very) late reply here – I thought I had written a reply before, but I guess I forgot (or forgot to save).

Actually a category feature was something I originally envisioned for the gadget, but I quickly came to the conclusion that it would add another level of complexity that would make it more difficult to use for the end-users. Therefore I think it is better to handle such cases by for example using templates (or even just plain text) saying something like "this translation for this term only applies in the <XYZ> context". What do you think?
