Hello Everybody,

I am new with MT (v. 7, build 615), I use TWB (v.7 build 320) and when there is a matching term in my text, the MT window shows the word in the termbase (an English word) and the name of the termbase, but not the equivalent, as appears in MultiTerm directly (it is a bilingual file with English and Spanish terms).

Can someone help me, please?

Thank you very much,

Asking for advice on the obvious... Jun 11, 2008

Hi Verdeflor, I mean no offence, nor do I want to sound arrogant, but allow me to post one personal remark please: you should invest at least some of your time in studying at least some of the most obvious things and functions in the manuals before you start using the software. If you buy a plasma TV, I suppose you don't start tuning channels without having referred to the manual, at least very briefly. And it's basically the same with a complex piece of software such as Trados.
I don't mean to discourage you from asking questions though; that's what this forum is for and about.

Anyway, in TW go to "Options > Term Recogintion Options" and swap the source and target languages.

Best regards,
