Hi,
I'm trying to export a Termbase database to import it in MultiTerm. I've tried to export as TXT, as MARTIF but I can't process these formats to get only the terms.

Is there a way to convert MARTIF to CSV or another solution to do this?

Thanks Jo but I meant Transit Termbase, not SDLX Termbase.

In Transit, when the dictionary window is active Nov 15, 2005

go File- Save as... (perhaps the uni option is the best, but ansi or ascii may be better depending on your charset)

You get a text file with the structure, for example, (I have cz-en): Czech term, (newline), English term, a few empty lines, Czech term, (newline), English term, a few empty lines, etc.

I think it may take some VBA in Excel to make it a "Muliterm compatible Excel file" (I do not like using Transit's Multiterm and prefer Transit, so I have never imported Excel into Multiterm, as a matter of fact), but this should be relatively easy.
