    Thanks for your interest in our dictionaries. To add the proposed translation to this entry, we first need a new sense in the English base dictionary for this. From Lexico:

    A new item added to an existing collection of books, paintings, or artefacts.
    ‘the day-to-day work of cataloguing new accessions’

    I will forward your suggestion to the team that manages the English base dictionary so they can consider adding this sense.

    Thank you for your message. I have added this sense. It will be included in future translation projects, and once translated into the various languages, will appear in the dictionaries the next time they are updated.
