Hi, everyone. When I loaded a 43M external termbase(.mdb format) to multiterm 7.0, I almost waited for fifteen minutes. Was it normal?
Thank you.

More details, please...? Nov 5, 2005

Hi jhmichael,
Did you manage to complete the import?
How many entries does the termbase have?
What are your system parameters (CPU clockspeed, RAM, OS, etc.)?

Thanks for giving us some more details.

Best regards,
Ralf

Dear Ralf,thank you for your kind response Nov 5, 2005

I managed to complete it finally.
This termbase contains only 28358 entries. My operation systerm is Windows XP professional with a cpu clockspeed of 1.3G mobile(intel) and 256 MB ddr ram.
I remembered when I used multiterm ix to do this, the importing process would be much shorter.

Quite a large termbase... Nov 5, 2005

Hi again,
This termbase contains only 28358 entries.

"Only"?

My operation systerm is Windows XP professional with a cpu clockspeed of 1.3G mobile(intel) and 256 MB ddr ram.

Guess more RAM might have improved the speed - but importing 30k terms sounds like a trigger-and-go-have-a-coffee job...

Glad it worked.

Best regards,
Ralf
