A Multiterm question: is there a way to access an open termbase from a Word document I\'m translating without having to copy the search word from Word, click on the Multiterm icon and paste it in the search field of Multiterm. Perhaps a quick way by highlighting the search word in Word and clicking on an icon in the task bar somewhere?

depends on the version Aug 14, 2002

MultiTerm iX: highlight the word & Ctrl+Alt+D



older versions: highlight the word in the TW window, click on the right mouse button and select the 2nd menu item.



hope you find the right words

Hi... Aug 14, 2002

highlight the word you want to search in the workbench window and press enter... the search window will appear with all the sentences in which the word... well, appears! If there is a match, of course.

Is this slightly quicker for you? Must be!



Note: I think we are talking about two different things here! In fact, I\'m talking about the Term Recognition option in Workbench, which is not Multiterm, obviously.

Are you using Multiterm IX? Aug 14, 2002

If so you highlight the word and click the green magnifying glass on the Multiterm IX menu bar.

...works with the "old" MultiTerm, too... Aug 14, 2002

You should have a MultiTerm icon bar in your Word window; highlight the word you want to search for and click on the magnifying glass: the search result will be displayed in the status bar at the bottom of your Word window.



This should only be necessary if the term isn\'t identified straight away (provided you activated Term Recognition in your Workbench). To place terms that were automatically recognised, use the Workbench icons in Word, or use the // shortcuts.

I\'ve got term recognition activated in my workbench, and the Trados window picks up on the terms I have in Multiterm - but I don\'t have a multiterm icon bar in my Word window, I just have the Trados bar. No green magnifying glass anywhere to be found



Any help is much appreciated!

it works now Aug 14, 2002

Thanks to all. I\'m using Multiterm 5.5 by the way, since that\'s what my client sent me and since that\'s what I instinctively chose from the start bar. Has anyone got any ideas what the difference now is with Multiterm iX (which also came with my 5.5 package)? Had I chosen Multiterm iX to open the termbase sent by the client, would procedures been different?



Multiterm recognition was activated in my Workbench all the time (at a low 45%) so opening the applications in the right order (Multiterm, Workbench, Word) put me on the right track.



I would\'ve still used DV but converting everything would\'ve been a total pain.



Thanks to Lise, Giovanni, Ralf (Tguru) and Gillian.

Hi Alison,

To see the icon bar, you need to activate the MultiTerm template (\'MTerm-DE.dot\' for the German version, for example). The files are located in the Trados installation directory (in my 5.0 team version: c:\\programme\\TRADOS\\T5\\TT\\Templates); copy the one you need into your MS Office Start directory (c:\\programme\\Microsoft Office\\Office\\Startup). When starting Word the next time, the template should be connected, displaying the icon bar. If it doesn\'t, make sure the template is linked (Word: Extras => Vorlagen und Add-Ins), and the icon bar is set for display (Word: Ansicht - Symbolleisten).



HTH - cheers, Ralf

Multierm IX is very different Aug 14, 2002

I\'m on a steep learning curve right now - I guess like everyone else is! I\'m trying to use it for a specific project - it helps if someone pays for the learning curve but I must says it\'s hard work.



I think it\'ll easier to use in the long run and it certainly seems more flexible. E.g. add a monolingual or dual lingual glossary into a word document at the click of a button. If only I could set it up to print the fields that I want ...

didn't even start to learn MT all over again ... Aug 14, 2002

well, actually I\'m not, since I couldn\'t yet convince myself that I have to learn this MultiTerm thing all over again

So I work with Trados WB 5.5 but with the old MultiTerm - but perhaps I\'ll manage to convince myself eventually - too bad if it turns out the money was more or less wasted
