    It could mean several things, depending on the context. Can you provide the context in which you saw or heard this?

    Thanks alot a lot.

    Please see my amendments above in red. If you are going to post on this forum a lot, you need to make sure that at least the basics of your written English are correct.

    1) Every sentence must begin with a capital letter.
    2) Every sentence must end with either a full stop, a question mark or an exclamation mark.
    3) The word "I" is always capitalised wherever it appears.
    4) Put the phrase you are querying in quotation marks "" not in brackets ().

    Now - your question. "In terms of..." can be used in a lot of ways.

    - In terms of output, our factory is running at full capacity.
    - In terms of taste, this cat food is the best.
    - How are you getting on with your essay, in terms of the number of words you've written so far?
