Use Multiterm Apr 18, 2008

TM is not for glossaries. You have to create a multiterm database.

Come on! Apr 18, 2008

Dear Marion,

I know this is going to sound harsh, but this is the twelfth basic question you have asked in this forum since April 15; that's three per day, not counting the further questions you have asked upon receiving initial answers.

Three times you have been pointed to the Help file/documentation that comes with the Trados package. You could have also done a forum search, because most of your questions have been asked many times before.

I am not a moderator, and perhaps I should not be saying this (sorry Ralph!).
But come on, read your documentation, read the forums. Do your homework, please.
You yourself will benefit most from it.

Good luck,

Amen, Margreet Apr 19, 2008

Kudoz to you for having the courage to say so. And that applies to others that prefer to not read as well. The documentation is good, one has only to read, and read again (preferrably before accepting a job?) to find the way to do things, and the answer to many questions. Then one will be left with those issues only experts (Ralph, Jerry, Vito) can sort out, and they will gladly help. But we all must show some responsibility first, and do our homework. For our own good.
