I am using Workbench 6.5.1.406 Build 410 and a Trados Multiterm 5 Termbase file. As I cannot seem to locate this file using the newer Multiterm version, I have opened it in Multiterm 5.5.0.244.

I believe all the settings are correct on Workbench with term recognition ticked and so on but when I open a translation section the multiterm gives the following message - "Source language was changed. The first entry is displayed."

As far as I can see the source language is the same - German - in the TM and the multiterm file so I do not know what else to look at. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Outdated version - is MT5.5 selected as terminology provider? Sep 9, 2004

Hi Louise,
I am using Workbench 6.5.1.406 Build 410 and a Trados Multiterm 5 Termbase file.

Are you aware that this version is outdated? It was replaced by T6.5.2 (build 417) at the beginning of this year, and T6.5.5 (build 438/439) has just been released. Version 6.5.1 contained numerous bugs - this could be one of them.

As I cannot seem to locate this file using the newer Multiterm version, I have opened it in Multiterm 5.5.0.244.

You cannot open MT5.5 databases in MTiX, but there is a conversion utility called MultiTerm Convert; this is contained in MultiTerm 6.2.0.267 (build 267), which was issued in the summer of 2003 and upgraded to build 279 in Februar 2004.

I believe all the settings are correct on Workbench with term recognition ticked and so on but when I open a translation section the multiterm gives the following message - "Source language was changed. The first entry is displayed."

In Options - Terminology Recognition Options, did you change the Terminology Provider to "MultiTerm 5"?

Best regards, Ralf

Thanks Ralph Sep 15, 2004

I can't seem to find the upgrade from 6.5.1 - only from 6.5.2 to 6.5.5. Does anyone know where I can find it?

Hi Louise,
Check Trados KB article 1349; the update should work for 6.5.1 as well:
TRADOS 6.5.5 is an update to TRADOS 6.5.x. It can be used for first-time installations and to replace previous installations of TRADOS 6.5 (both TRADOS 6.5.0 and TRADOS 6.5.2). The installation program will automatically uninstall any previous installation of TRADOS 6.5 on your computer before installing TRADOS 6.5.5. You may need to restart the installer after your previous version is uninstalled.


HTH, Ralf

You've done it again Ralph! Sep 16, 2004

I used the link you gave me to update to 6.5.5 and now MultiTerm works perfectly.

Thanks a lot for your help.

Louise
