Am I correct to assume that I can not use X->Y TermBase in the other direction (Y->X). I can always create the twin TermBase but thought I'd check first,

PS: trying the other (Y->X) way throws an invalid pointer at me; the Y line-up shows, but no trace of X.

Just switching the language pair is enough May 5, 2007

I don't know which MT are you using.
In the newer one I could not find the option "create fuzzy index" - but maybe this is what you should do first.
Then I would reorganise the termbase.

If all this does not help and you still are not able to switch directions, so your termbase seems to be corrupted somehow. Maybe an export and import would help? When importing, omit all over and under defined segments.

Regards
Jerzy

I don't have that problem May 5, 2007

I use bilingual and trilingual glossaries and seem to work either way.

Therefore, as Jerzy says, there must be something wrong...

I think the DB definition is incomplete May 8, 2007

Hi Jerzy:

The version is the latest (SDL 2007). I created the TermBase from scratch via Convert so nothing is lost. The simplest explanation right now is that I got the definition wrong / onesided only.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Vito
