Hi again,

Different post, a whole new question.

A while ago, a client sent me a glossary in xls format, that I promptly converted into Multiterm import file, following the most useful instructions of Bharg Shah, posted here at ProZ (http://www.proz.com/doc/149).

Since then, in the course of the translation process, I've added "manually" a few other frequently used terms to my termbase.

Now I would like to update my Multiterm glossary/termbase with the latest one sent by the client, again in xls format. The problem is, if I import the whole new glossary they've sent me, I'll end up with most of the terms duplicated, and that gets in my way of using Multiterm as a translation aid tool.

My question is, do you know how can I import just the terms I haven't yet got in my Multiterm database? I'd like to import all entries except the ones that are exact matches and also keep my edited entries.

I have Office XP, Trados 5.0 Freelance and MultiTerm 5.0.1.217 (build 217).

Thank you in advance,

Jorge
