I would like to convert a Multiterm 5 database into a Multiterm iX by using the Multiterm converson tool. After finishing the conversion, I had a look in the created xml file and I found out that all the entries have been duplicated. If I import this xml file into a new created iX database, all entries would be duplicated as well. Did anybody have the same experience? I would be glad, if somebody could send me a solution for this problem.

I'd check the options you selected during the conversion. Or try converting it again making sure everything is right.
MultiTerm allows you to search for and delete duplicate entries.
