How to map multiple Taxonomies terms to Content?

Thank You.

When you define your content type under "content definition," you will find a "Taxonomy Field" that you can add as a content field. Once you add the taxonomy field to your content type, you need to configure the taxonomy field behavior to allow this.

To configure, you expand the taxonomy field on the edit content type page by clicking the expansion arrow that appears to the left of the newly added taxonomy field and select a root taxonomy for the terms you want to be selectable. The default behavior has "Allow only one term to be selected" unchecked so you can select multiple terms with no further configuration. In your case, you might select the "restrict selectable elements to leaves" option to prevent the author from selecting the root taxonomy.

Thanks Yeorwned. It helps me a lot.

Is there any other interface like having check boxes to select multiple term rather than one text box?

Checkboxes / radiobuttons should be the default UI. A textbox appears when you enable Autocomplete.
