I've used MultiTerm iX for months, but today a client has sent to me a database having .mtw extension. This is a MultiTerm 5 database which I'm trying to open from Options > Term Recognition Options > Multiterm version.
When I select MultiTerm 5, a message is displayed saying I have to open MultiTerm database manually. The client says that it should be under my Trados folder, but I cannot see it.
Has anyone encountered the same problem in the past?
Thanks in advance

Use Multiterm Convert to convert the file to mdb. Jun 28, 2005


You can find Multiterm Convert as follows:

Start / Programs / Trados / Multiterm folder / Multiterm Convert

After you get a mdb file, open MTiX and attach it.
