Hi,

I would like to share a MultiTerm terminology I created with my friend. Which files do I need to send her in order to use MultiTerm in SDLX? There are xcd, xdt, xcl, etc, etc... I'm not sure which ones to send.

Thanks,
Naomi

Export either as XML or as XLS Apr 15, 2008

If memory serves, you have five different export options in MultiTerm, of which the most popular ones are exporting to XML and exporting to an Excel worksheet, and for good reason. You should export the TDB as an XML ffile and give instructions to your friend for importing it.

For further (and extremely useful) information on exporting and importing termbases, take a look at this page: http://ecolotrain.uni-saarland.de/index.php?id=1714&L=1

You may want to look at the other exercises on the left side of the page for more information to help you understand terminology management concepts.

All the best!

Export XML (at my side) and then Import it (at my friend) in MultiTerm Apr 15, 2008

Salut Viktoria,

Thanks alot for your quick response!

Actually I converted an Excel file into an XML with MultiTerm Convert and then import it to MultiTerm. I use it in SDLX and now I want to share it with my friend. I will export it with Export function in MultiTerm as you advised. I was not sure if the other party has to import the XML again.

I will also check the site you kindly suggested.

Merci beaucoup encore!
