Changing the default terminology at the Client level

This will be done within a client's statutory database and will only affect that client.  To do this go to the General Folder > Client Preferences and Compliance Terminology.

Select the terminology to be used for the client.  This will remain in force until changed at the client level in future, if required.  A master change will not override this choice.
