Hi everybody,
I've just bought SDL Trados 2007 and wanted to create a Termbase in Multiterm using the Convert tool.
I got a glossary in xls, just two columns - EN and ES. I convert it properly, at leat that seems to me, as the dialog says "359 entries created" or something like that.
I then open Multiterm, and when I import the created file, it says:
0 entries imported.
I look in the log file and it says:
-1 Does not conform to the target termbase definition.
Reason: No se pudo encontrar la tabla de resultados 'I_EN'.
Source: MtServer.MtTermbase.1

Translation of "Reason": Could not find the results table "I_EN".

It says the same for all the entries.
Any help?
Thank you.

Index fields definitions May 24, 2008

Hi,
make sure your index fields have the same names as your Excel table columns, i. e. the first row in your Excel file.

Example:
The first row in your Excel file says EN and ES. Then, when defining the index fields labels, you have to rename "English" to "EN" and "Spanish" to "ES". Otherwise the converted XML won't be imported into MultiTerm.

Still problems May 26, 2008

Hi again and thank you for your answer.
I checked the field names and they're ok. I still get the same problem.
My table has just two columns: EN, ES.
When I create the termbase to import the data, I call the fields EN and ES.
I convert the Excel table properly, but always get the same error "does not conform to the target termbase definition".

If I just have two columns, where may be the error?

Correct capitalization of the language names... May 26, 2008

You should say "EN" to "English" and "ES" to "Spanish"?

Otherwise the converted XML won't be imported into MultiTerm.

It's a well know bug in MT Convert.
Make sure the names are typed like "English", not ENGLISH, english etc.
In earlier MT versions *(up to 7.0/7.1), the correct capitalization was a must.
As the oldest bug in MT I know is approx. 6 years old, I'm not sure it's fixed in the latest version.

Chers

TOPIC STARTER
Resolved!! May 26, 2008

From the last answer received, I got the clue!
In Excel I was calling the columns EN and ES.
I changed that into English and Spanish and that resolved it!!!

I hope this topic will help to other people.

I just wanted you to call the index fields EN and ES in MultiTerm Convert, as they are named English and Spanishh by default.
So you did it the other way round, but the important thing is you got it!

It should help the MultiTerm programmers first.
This kind of bug is a shame.

You can't change these names in MT Convert...
They're hardcoded.
MT 2007 SP1.

Yep

Cheers

Clarification May 29, 2008

No, you can't. But you can during the import in MT.
