Hi,

I have a problem!
I need to create a termbase in multiterm iX.
I have an excel file with the glossary.
In a previous version of Multiterm, I used to convert the excel file, following some steps, to a .txt, and then in Multiterm I imported and that was it.
But this new version of Multiterm, asks me for a .xml file to import in the new termbase I created.
I don't know how to do that: to turn my .txt file into an .xml file.
PLEASE HELP ME! IT'S URGENT!
Thanks
Eugenia

Use MT Convert May 14, 2005

I'm on holiday, and on a low-bandwidth connection, so I'll be short.

You need to use MT Convert, a utility that's installed with MTiX (provided that you use MTiX 6.2.0.267 or higher). Search the forum for "MT Convert" for more details.

Best regards,
Ralf

Open the xls file in excel, choose 'save as', click on the drop-down list for 'file type' and choose xml.
In Multiterm, choose default import and 'process' (lets you browse to your new xml file)

Have you tried this...? May 14, 2005

Hi Sally,
I wonder whether you have been able to import a database successfully...

Open the xls file in excel, choose 'save as', click on the drop-down list for 'file type' and choose xml.
In Multiterm, choose default import and 'process' (lets you browse to your new xml file)

Specifically, how do you create the termbase definition (.xdt), and ensure that the XML format is compliant with the MTiX import format?

Puzzled, Ralf
