TAS Thesaurus Manager

Basic information

TAS Thesaurus Manager is a thesaurus-building software that facilitates a more optimal and sophisticated operation of the TAS Enterprise Search engine.

TAS Thesaurus Manager makes it possible to define and control conceptual relationships between search terms, making it easier to find relevant results in TAS Enterprise Search.

Possible relations that can be defined between the words:

  • synonym
  • correct form
  • typo
  • narrower term
  • broader term
  • stop list



The thesaurus-building module makes it possible to find more relevant results on the TAS Enterprise Search interface. The amount and quality of the words you specify determines the sophistication of the search process.
By creating word links in TM, the search process can be greatly optimized, since no multiple searches are required in case of similar terms (eg. USA – United States – United States of America).


Word pairs features

  • must include a basic expression (base expression, base word, first word)
  • can include a related expression (related word, second keyword)
  • has the specification opportunity of the relationship between the two terms (synonym, stoplist, narrower term of, broader term of, correct form of, typo of)
  • has category definition option to help annotators and reviewers decide which areas of the word pair are related to

Workflow roles

  • Annotator: basic role, can handle word pairs added to annotation
  • Reviewer: Has annotator rights, can also accept previous annotations
  • Deployer: has both annotator and reviewer role, can install the already adopted spellings for sharp use (eg search)
  • Expertise: regardless of the roles, you can assign a domain to each user that matches the categories that can be assigned to word pairs. This ensures that the pair of words in a given category gets to the right user.


  • Any user can add a new word or expression by specifying the base term for annotation, with as little information as possible to save the word pairs
  • The related phrase can also be already added during insertion or annotation (this is true for the following fields)
  • Then the specification of the relationship between the two terms (or a category to which the pair belongs) is possible
  • After insertion, the pair of words can be annotated (unfilled fields are specified by the annotator)
  • The process must be accepted by a reviewer
  • Approved word pairs can be deployed by a Deployer
