Now I'm working on a translation job, and the source files (.ppf) are created by Transit NXT, including a termbase (.mdb). I know how to import Transit NXT package into MemoQ, but I cannot take advantage of that termbase (.mdb).

I wonder if you have any solution to help me use that .mdb termbase in MemoQ?

Any help with this question would be much appreciated, thank you.

As far as I know (and I am not a Transit expert), the internal structure of files from Transit term module Star is not so simple. For example, you may read the discussion here:

And to see this to evaluate that even the export from Transit mdb file is not an obvoius trick:

Probably, you should apply to your client, who gave you the translation, to export and send to you these contents (of mdb file) into a CSV or TXT file. Or, better put your question in this forum, but in Transit section.

Good luck to you.
