How to deprecate a phrase
The proper way is deprecate phrases is by updating the source file with the latest phrases and selecting "deprecate" during import.
Section 1 of this help desk article covers all the steps needed to update your source file and deprecate old phrases.
Please note though it is currently possible to deprecate manually on the platform, you should not use this method.
