i was asked to create a termbase from 80 previous projects from one client. I have now installed Trados Multiterm on my computer but have never used it before so any kind of advise on how to go about it would be great.
I basically have to create a completely new termbase from scratch. All the projects are in MS Word. some of the questions i need help with are:
1) I assume i have to open each project and go through it and insert the terms manually into the new termbase?
2) Is there a way of finding the terms that are found the most often and have them listed as the most importnat in the termbase?
3) Is it possible for a non-native speaker (medium to low level knowledge of the language) of the language in which the original file is to create a term base (or is extensive knowledge of both the original and target language needed)?
4) i saw that you can download termbases for different topics online. Are these helpful?
So far this is what i need to know. Please help.
For to take all project in one termbase in multiterm, It will be better for you to convert all word files to excel file,
In multiterm you can convert excel files very easily to a new termbase, (this option could be aviable Multiterm 7 desktop, I do not know others),
After converting the excel files now you can create a termbase with .xdt files which must be automatically crated while converting excel files to multiterm termbase.
After create a new termbase you can import the xml files (the converted version of the excel file) that was all,
If you will have Questions try to mail me I hope I can help you for the process.
