To what extend are they compatible. If I make a terminology list in Access, can I import it in Trados. It is possible in Déjà Vu because DjV creates standard access database forms, but what about trados...

Translators Workbench or MultiTerm ? Aug 7, 2003

Do you like to import in Translators Workbench or in MultiTerm?

Access to Excel then:
For import to MultiTerm 5 u can use for example: T-Windows for Excel --> Tool --> Convert XLS to MultiTerm 5 Import Format.

For import to TWB then see here-> http://groups.yahoo.com/group/TW_users/
In the file section you will find some macros.

Déjà Vu is based on Access.. Aug 7, 2003

..but Trados is based on Word.

Nevertheless there are several ways to import Access lists (in text or memo format) into Trados:

  • Export it in 2 files, one for source text and one for target text and align them using WinAlign. This is particularly useful if your memo fields contain line breaks (shift + enter).
  • Export it into one tab-separated file, for importing it into a TM or into MultiTerm. In these cases you need another program or process to format the exported files in a way in which they can be imported.
    You will find the how-to's for this step in several Trados places.

  • If you can't find a helpful how-to, simply export something from a TM or Multiterm and open it in a text processor to see how it is formatted (tagged). It is not very complicated, but you need a little bit of programming skill..

    Good speed
