Hi,

An agency sent me a multiterm to work on, but the files appear unrecognized. There are 12 files in total, an mtw, one LOK, three MTA and Trados index files. Probably they were created with a version different than mine. I have trados 6 (build 309). When I worked on it in the past, the agency sent me a xdt file and I imported it

MT 5.x files Apr 29, 2005

Hi,
Looks like the termbase you got is a MT5.x database - provided that you're using MTiX 6.2.0.267 or higher, use MT Convert to generate an .xdt definition and .xml import file.

Best, Ralf

Conversion tool Apr 29, 2005

Hi again,
This version of MTiX was replaced with the 2003 Summer Release (which, at the time, was free). IIRC the conversion tool provided with MT 6.0.x also supported .mtw files. Since I started using MTiX with build 267, I cannot test that, unfortunately.

Best, Ralf
