Hi everybody.

I'm trying to convert a .txt terminology file with Multiterm, but when importing it, MT simply erases all Spanish characters (á, é, ñ, etc).

e.g. instead of "Day - Día" it reads: "Day - Da".

What can I do?

Which MT version - what type of text file? Jun 23, 2005

Hi Edwal,
Which MT version are you working on? What type of text file are you importing (specifically, which coding)?

Not sure what the problem is, but we'll need some more details to get to the core of it...

Best regards,
Ralf

a Text editor, like "Editor" (Windows) and save it not as ANSI but as UTF-8

That's all
