Dear all,

I work with Trados 6.5.5.438 and Multiterm 552.257 running on Windows XP.

I have a very large multiterm database about 95% of which consists of terms from a certain source which are of no use to me at all. Is there a simple way to delete all terms with this source and leaving the remaining terms in the termbase?

Any ideas very much appreciated.

Thanks


Ian

File -> Maintenance Mar 24, 2005

You can use filters in the Maintenance area. You can, for example, select filters that will find segments that have all been produced on the same date (or within a range of dates) or by the same person.

Another option is to export the memory and physically delete the segments in, say, Word (this may be easier than using the Maintenance option but will depend on how large your memory is and whether you can easily find the segments you wish to delete).

Hi, Ian,

One way would be to create a filter which only shows the entries which do not have that source. Export all the entries that meet this criterium and then import the XML into a new termbase.

If you don't want to create a new database, the only other way would be to use the MultiTerm API to run a macro or something which goes entry by entry, check if it meets the criterium (not having that source) and deleting the entry if doesn't.
