Good afternoon,

I am trying to enter new terms during the translation in Word but only I can send the selected term (source term)in the MT but without the target term! Is that normal? I tried before in tag editor and I could do it!
Please can you answer me.
Thank you.

Enter the target term into the intended box Jan 17, 2009

I don't know which version you have of MS Word. However, in MS Word 2007 it works fine with MultTerm 2007.

1) Highlight the source term in the document
2) Click on "MultTerm - Add Entry" on the toolbar
3) Enter a translation of the source term into the Target term box (if necessary for other options, press the "More..." button)
4) Press the "Add" button
5) Finished!

Word 2003 Jan 17, 2009

Thank you Ulf for your answer but I think it has to be quite different with Word 2003. I clicked to "add entry" and it saved the term and closed the window. When I checked in MT then, only the source term. I can't see where I can add the target term in the toolbar!!??
If any suggestiones?

Add Entry window may be out of desktop area Jan 17, 2009

This is done at your own risk!!!

Make a restore point in Windows first, if you have to resort to an earlier Windows status!

Close down all SDL applications.
From the Start menu, select Run, type in Regedit and press Enter
Note: You are now in the Windows Registry. Be very careful as any unwanted changes cannot be undone and may harm the software on your machine. Making changes in the Windows Registry is done at your own risk.
Locate the following key & delete it: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SDL
Restart the SDL applications, the key will be recreated and the Add Entry window will hopefully now be displayed.

Word 2003 and MultiTerm Jan 17, 2009

I also have Word 2003 and this is how I do it:

First, make sure you have selected the right termbase and it's the default.

Once the segment is open, select the target term and click on the respective button (1) or click Ctrl+Shift+T.

Then, select the source term and click on the Add Term button (2) or Ctrl+Shift+M.

The 'Submit to termbase' dialog (3) will be open so you can just accept or Alt+A. The terms should be added to the selected termbase.

I took some screenshots:



Good luck.

Claudia

Edit: I forgot one thing. In order for the dialog to show up, the 'Show Quick Entry Form' (right of Add Term) button should be highlighted.

QuickEntryForm - how to configure? May 28, 2009

Hi Claudia,

maybe you will know the answer for my question:
I'm using the Quick Entry Form in Word to add terms to my termbase.

But as my termbase contains more than two languages (EN, DE, PL), when I open the form adding a term for DE->PL the drop down list "Target index" is set to EN. So I allways have to change this to PL manually. This is a very annoying behavior of MultiTerm.

Do you know a way to configure this Form or the MultiTerm7.dot to set the target index to the language I want to be set to or to the language which is set in MultiTerm?

TIA
Stan

No idea May 29, 2009

Sorry Stan, I have no idea. And I have Multiterm 2009 now which doesn't seem to work with Word, so I can't even try to work it out. If I manage to find the template, I'll look into it and let you know.

Good luck,

Claudia
