I would like to convert my glossaries (in Excel or Word usually) into a Multiterm file. I guess it should be possible, but I have no idea how to do it and I couldn't find any options in my Multiterm (version 7). I hope someone can give me some clue...
Thanks in advance!

You can try to follow the steps, described in the manual Nov 29, 2007

and also in this PDF document.
Paying attention to follow the steps exactly as described and preparing the Excel file accordingly you should not have any poblems in converting Excel to Multiterm.
If you want to convert Word files, you will have first to copy the tables into Excel. There is no other way to convert Word files to MT glossaries.
