Please see these images. The first image is from istock's website, the second image is from my own persona keywording software that uses istock's API.

'leather couch' and 'camping chair' are both apparently known terms to istock's software BUT there are no disambiguation for those terms, so in essence there are not search able because no one is going to know to use double qutoations. Nor are those terms translated into any other language. iStock's API does not flag an error for those two terms but it does for 'zingo zango'. Is there something more that can be done to have the istock API return feedback on when keywords/phrases are not in the CV because apprently according to my developer the iStock API does not give this feedback.

I'm not going to pretend I understand the coding side of the iStock API, but given that DeepMeta treats all three of your examples the same way (ie shades them blue which indicates no matching CV term) - there must be a way for your developer to do the same thing.  Good luck!

Hmmm...DeepMeta must know something my developer doesn't know. I'll let him know. Thanks!
