Hello to everybody
I am looking for a good and valuable TMS.

I am currently using Trados MultiTerm 5.5, but if it not very user-friendly when searching for words or expressions I have saved.

I also have SDL MultiTerm 2007 but I consider it even worse than MT 5.5

Any suggestions are highly appreciated

Kind Regards
Alberto S.

Xbench Aug 14, 2010

Try Xbench from Apsic. I have used it for years and will never go back to MultiTerm.
It is free, easy to use and covers a lot of file-types.

Have a look here:
It's on the slightly more general subject of terminology lists but might be useful.

Terminology management for the Mac Apr 7, 2012

Dunno if this is still of interest. I found a quite interesting program for Terminology Management on the Mac. Its' called tlTerm. Costs about 120 €.

I like easy Terminology management with Wordfast classic Apr 10, 2012

cause the term base is then in txt to be open in the editor or word or excel for instance + TO3000 was offering an interesting Term Managament tool with its recent update.
WF Classic works with Mac, so there should be no problem for you.

Haven't used TO3000 Tool yet and not sure it works for Mac...

Having a good term management tool that could work with all cat tools and system without importing-exporting... (ie. having different versions of the term base for each cat tool) would be great really... This way whatever the cat tool used, the terms would all be stored in one and same file...

Put them in your TM? Apr 10, 2012

I will occasionally align terminology lists and import them into my main TM so they come up on a concordance search. Otherwise you can end up using twice the effort looking in concordance and a separate terminology resource.

tlTerm = Highly (!!!) recommended for serious terminology work Apr 10, 2012

I second Wolfgang's suggestion. I have used every program mentioned here, and finally decided to buy tlTerm. I use it alongside memoQ.

In an ideal world there would of course also be a way to sync my tlTerm termbase with my memoQ TBs, but you can't have everything...
