A naming standard is a list of abbreviations and words they represent, defined as terms in a glossary. Talend Cloud Data Catalog allows you to define a naming standard once and reuse it for documenting different models and their new versions.

Abbreviation/Naming standard can help you to derive business names from physical ones in a consistent manner. For example, a physical name empl_first_name can be interpreted as a business name Employee First Name by tokenizing the physical name over the "_" separator, assuming "empl" is an abbreviation of "employee" and capitalizing the first letters of each word. This process is automated by Talend Cloud Data Catalog based upon any defined naming standard.

Talend Cloud Data Catalog can generate an initial naming standard from a physical model. It is a list of all unique abbreviation tokens produced from table and column physical names. The application tokenizes names by separating characters (such as "_") and capitalized letters (such as EmployeeName).

To associate a glossary with a physical data model for naming standard purposes, you may do at model creation time or when editing the settings of the model.
