I was sent the following file and I am trying to import it to Multiterm iX. What is the procedure? I tried following the last bit of TRADOS instructions

To import the file into an already existing database, go to File/Open Database in MultiTerm and open the relevant database.


2. In MultiTerm, go to the File menu and choose Import. The Import Options dialog box will appear. Click OK.
3. The Open dialog box will appear.
4. Browse to and choose the name of the import file.

but there is no option for txt import.

Here is a sample of the file to be imported

MTiX vs. MultiTerm 5.x Apr 16, 2004

Hi Spiros,
Looks like you're trying to apply the import instructions for MultiTerm 5.x to MultiTerm iX...

MTiX has its own import wizard called MultiTerm Convert, which supports tab-delimited text or CSV files, as well as Excel spreadsheets.

HTH, Ralf
