I'm trying to use 2 term bases on a project but always get the following error when I try to add a new term to both:


Accessing TBLanguageDataEx for a non-existing language.


Does anyone know how to solve this? Both term bases are set up with the same source and target language combination (English > Swedish - both the main, generic language versions) and the problem occurs every time I try to use a second term base in addition to the one set as "primary". It doesn't seem to depend on which term base is set as primary and which is set as second - in either combination, the error occurs as long as I have 2 term bases connected to the project. (I haven't tried more than 2 term bases.) As soon as I remove the second term base from the project, everything works fine (independent of which term base happens to be used).

Looks like a setup issue May 13, 2014

I use two or more termbases all the time. I would get in touch with Kilgray's support. Some setting or file could be corrupted in your system.

Agree with Tomas May 13, 2014

I work all the time with various TBs open, so it is clearly a setup issue, which we users are not really capable of handling
