Hi!

I have some concern with the linking of the MultiTerm with Trados, version SDL Trados 2006. I am following the following steps to link the MultiTerm with Trados:

Option---> Term Recognization Options ---> Termbase ---> MultiTerm ix ---> Browse.

I am really unable to open the multiterm.

Should I re-install the MultiTerm once again? It may be possible that I couldn't install the MultiTerm properly.

One more quick question, can we link more than one glossaries/termbases at the same time? If yes could you explain in detail.

Thanks in advance.

You say MultiTerm iX?
SDLT 2006 is provided with MT 7.
So maybe it's some compatibility issue.
You should upgrade to MT7 (go to your SDL account, download it and read CAREFULLY the readme in order to import the termbases, then start the installation).

It's possible.
The Workbench - Multiterm integration is a shame.
The standard support mantra is "reinstall and reregister the components", generally it works, but sometimes the problem can't be solved without a heavy debugging or can't be solved at all.
The Multiterm architecture is too complex (Java, .Net, Access MDB...), there is a lot of vulnerable points.

In MT7, yes.
In MTiX, no.


If yes could you explain in detail.

Just click another time the green +

Some extra help... Apr 25, 2008

Hello Manohar,

Grzegorz is correct; you will need to update your version of Multiterm. However, I recommend that you upgrade to the latest version, Multiterm 2007 (including service pack 1), which can be download (free of charge) from your online SDL account.

As Grzegorz informed you, please read the documentation to import your old termbases.

After updating, you will need to register your new version of Multiterm 2007 to Windows, it's a necessity. To do this simply follow these instructions:

Go to C:\Program Files\SDL International\MultiTerm 2007 and run the #_SelfRegister_Desktop.bat file.

You now need to configure Translators Workbench:

Go to Translators Workbench -> Term Recognition Options -> Termbase options and please choose "Multiterm 7" as the Multiterm version. Please select the termbase(s) you wish to lookup and then make sure your source and target languages are set.

Please note: If you selected more than one termbase to lookup, Multiterm will search the default termbase first.

Also, please make sure that "Term Recognition" is ticked under the Translators Workbench -> Options menu.

I hope this helps.

Many Thanks,

Gareth Powell
