Is it possible to download the manually introduced terminology in the Proz-glossries and introduce them in a Trados TM memory later. I intend to make some glossaries and can either do this in MsAccess or introduce them directly in the Proz-glossaries.
However, I would like to be able to convert them into Trados.

Most probably it is going to be possible soon Jul 23, 2003

I started working on a converter for my own use, but it looks like many people have this problem. Probably it is going to be shareware. Now I think of terminologu databases in text files (csv), Excel and Access.

I appreciate any ideas.

There is not a way now to export KudoZ glossaries. But is a good idea. I will add it to the list of suggestions.

Not Kudoz, but the terminology with which you gain BrowniZ: If I want to add a terminology about "chauffe-bains modulants avec sécurite de refoulement" or in English "Graduated acting bath water heater with temperature cut-out" (please correct if not 100% correct) in my own terminology lists on ProZ, I create a terminology file which I would like to be available for later use in say Access,Trados or Déjà Vu.
I have to create that database manually.
I do not have it in Access or Trados, so I can not upload it.
If I create it directly in my own glossaries, I am not able to retrieve it later, so I will have to do things twice.
Of course, being able to download both KudoZ and one own glossary with regard to a particular subject area would be a big advantage.

Downloading terminology Jun 25, 2016

I also have a question about downloading terminology. I made a number of glossaries by language. Unfortunately they are not in alphabetic order, terms appear by date of introduction in I would like to dowload my glossaries, correct them, put them in alphabetic order and reintroduce them. It there any other way than to do this page by page, which would take ages. As a test, I downloaded some page into a Word table but I seem unable to reintroduce them in Any suggestions? Thanks
