I’m using Trados 2007 and MultiTerm 2007. Converting Excel workbooks using MultiTerm Convert used to be a breeze.

However, since I installed SP2, Convert chokes as soon as I select “Spreadsheet or database exchange format” or “Microsoft Excel format”, and click “Next”. The error message states “An entry with the same key already exists”.

If I select any other conversion option (“MultiTerm 5 format”, ”Olif XML format”, and so on), the error does not occur.

I don’t know what key it is Convert complains about, nor what to do about the problem. Has anyone solved this issue?

With regards,

Thor Kottelin
