Dear All, it may seems too simple. However, I just don't know how to use MultiTerm. I've set up a new MultiTerm, however, I don't know how to add terms in during translation. Could anyone kindly give advice? Many thanks! Sincere Carol Chen

Not long ago I asked the same question.
The easiest way is to highlight the source term in TE, right-click it and choose at the bottom Add Term > Set as source term. Do the same with the target term and set it as source term. Then press Ctrl+Shift+M.
There are also keyboard commands, but for me they don't work at least under Vista.

You have of course first to select the termbase in Workbench.
Hope this helps.
