New keyword to the dropdown list


I can't add a new keyword to the dropdown list. I have only the option to choose an exiting keyword. Example: I didn't find words in the list that describe manual jobs like: tanner or coppersmiths, souk... 

Thank you and what to do in this situation?

    Bonjour, j'ai le même souci. À l'étape 5, je ne peux pas ajouter de nouveaux mots clés.

    Hello Monica and Linda,


    You cannot add you own keywords through this list because it's UNESCO thesaurus (description keywords standardised by UNESCO). If you want, you can add free keywords in "Description" field. 


    Example : #tanner #coppersmith #souk
