No, it’s still not working for one or more keywords in Simplified Chinese. For example, “葡萄糖” or “血液” etc.
But it’s working for English keyword(s) if there is any English keyword(s) in the Chinese translation. For example, “WBC” etc.
LOINC Groups might be used to create LOINC value sets.
Typical use cases and examples would facilitate understanding of LOINC Groups and their use/value.
Visualization of the hierarchical structure of LOINC Groups would also be helpful to quickly/briefly master LOINC Groups.
Further categorization/classification of LOINC Groups would facilitate navigation of LOINC Groups.
Multiple levels of granularity may be needed for various use cases.
Amazing job! Maybe it could facilitate the development of common code subsets like Top2K+ in other countries/regions etc.
For both your questions, I think your understandings are right.
Note: I’m not from RI but a volunteer translator for the Chinese linguistic variant.
An embedded translation module might facilitate volunteer translation of LOINC Parts into more languages. Many existing resources of the software RELMA and its database can be easily resused by the module. This is partly because the RELMA database is evolving over time and such changes would prevent volunteers from following up the growth and development of the LOINC and the mapping tool.

Thank you so much for detailed explanation. But there is still another question: should LOINC create a separate concept for pregnant APF? This is because, I think, the AFP is just a general concept and it couldn’t explicitly represent something like AFP.Pregnant. Would the LOINC committee create such a unique concept for pregnant APF?
Thanks! I didn’t find such a file named error.log. When the text file is placed outside the RELMA Install directory, the error message will be dispalyed. Later, I will provide a snapshot when possible.
