I have TRADOS/MultiTerm 7 and Across 5 available and wondering whether there is a solution for the following problem:
My current job is to translate several job descriptions for SAP professionals.
These consist almost entirely of SAP terminology. I do have a good (and huge - 36,000 entries) .XLS glossary, however, it takes forever to look up each term manually (usually I need to look up the same term multiple times).
Is there a simple way to have most of the text machine-translated, or at least have the program tell me the correct terms? I would probably have to feed the Excel glossary into my translation memory somehow, a feat which, to my great shame, I have failed to accomplish so far.
I know that all TRADOS pros are going to sneer now because the procedure is probably quite simple. In this special case, however, finding the right solution would almost take me as long as translating the entire text, so I hope that there is someone out there that knows just what to do.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
Are you asking how to load your glossary to Multiterm or how create a memory with your glossary or both?
a) The first has been already answered.
b) The second is quite simple to do, if the glossary is a two columns excel list. It is explained here.
c) Another method is to download the Apsic Workbench utility, load your glossary to it, an then export it to a TMX memory.
