Hi, as far as I know this is not possible. This needs to be done in Idiom WorldServer by your client, that is your client needs to import the Word document into WorldServer and prepare an xlz package (which contains the file, the relevant TM entries and the glossary) which you can edit in Idiom Workbench.

With Gabi -- this is not possible. Your client needs to prepare the package and send it to you.
