A big project and (of course) a new problem with Trados!

I have a terminology list (plain text) that I want to import in Multiterm 5. I have formatted the list -as usual- following the special formatting rules of Multiterm, for example:



**

Schuh

chaussure

**



But when I want to import this list in Multiterm, I have a problem, which is probably due to the \"cédille\". Multiterm doesn\'t recognize as a field (because of the cédille of Français in the plain text list and all the text goes in the field. It looks so in Multiterm after the import:



Schuhchaussure



Anybody knows if I have to format specially the plain text list?

How can I resolve this problem?

Thank you!

Use "French" instead of "Francais" Jan 4, 2003

If the cedille is really the problem, this shouldn\'t occur if you use \"French\".



Other potential problems I can think of:

- The two lines are separated by a \"soft\" line break (Shift+Enter), as opposed to a \"hard\" break (Enter).

- Is the text file really text, i.e. straight ASCII? Try to open it in the Windows Notepad - if you can\'t see the cedille there, it\'s a font issue.

How is it possible to change the field names? Jan 6, 2003

Thank you for your Answer Ralf.

But how is it possible to change the field names of an existing databank?



(kann man die Feldnamen nachträglich ändern?)

Format of txt Feb 8, 2003

the format of your txt must reflect the names of the Index Fields as defined in File/Change Termbase Definition. If your index fields are labelled \"Français\" & \"Allemand\", your entry in the txt must look like:



**

[]Schuh

[]chaussure

**



NB. Without the \"[\" & \"]\" - inserted here so that proz can display them.



I have tried it. It works for me.
