Hello,
can anyone tell me how to import SDL termbases into memoQ?
Only csv files can be imported into memoQ, right? And how can
I convert a xml file from SDL Multiterm to csv?
Quite a mess the whole thing...

thank you

You could try an XSLT transformation which is described here: http://strefatlumaczen.pl/mtxml2txt.html

Hope it can help.

How much information do you have? Aug 10, 2012

There could be different approaches to this, none of them really automatic. How much information do you have in Multiterm and want to port to memoQ?

Edited for clarification: With "how much information" I meant how many details about each term, not how many entries, of course!icon_smile.gif

Seems quite complicated...
Kilgray provides a tool called MultiTermConverter that works to some extent...

Except for the entries in two languages there is no additional information (detail)...

Interoperability between memoQ and other CAT tools Aug 10, 2012

Hi Frank,

I attended a webinar on this subject yesterdayicon_smile.gif I believe you can see the recorded version at
http://kilgray.com/webinars/interoperability-between-memoq-and-other-tools-1700-cest-1500-gmt
Anyway, it is quite simple actually. You just have to export your TB as a CSV txt file, and import it with the command "Import from CSV/TMX".

Export the TB with the "Tab-delimited export definition" in Multiterm, and then import it directly from the MemoQ Resourse Console, or when creating a new project.

Moreover, you can also import a TM tmx as a termbase.

I do that on a daily basis, and it works perfectlyicon_smile.gif

Kind regards,
Jasmina

Those hacks.... Aug 10, 2012

Can appear geeky at first sight, but once you get the hang of it, they do their job.

But you should explore the available options and choose the one that's best for you.

Regards,

Piotr
