Hi everynone,
after nearly eight months of happy and trouble-free working with Trados 835, I started getting this annoying message again.
The problem only occurs with one single termbase, no matter if working with TagEditor or Word.
I've already tried:
- deleting the MultiTerm7dot.xml file
- removing MultiTerm7.dot from the Word Startup folder
- exporting and reimporting the troublesome termbase into a new one
- re-registering TW and MT (in this order)
- re-registering MT and TW (in this order)

No matter what I do, the problem simply persists. Can anyone think of a solution/workaround that works?

Any help would be greatly appreciated...icon_smile.gif

System specs:
WinXP Home SP2
Latest Java Runtime Env. version installed
Latest .NET Framework installed
Trados 835
Multiterm 7.5 (build 448)

Try this... Oct 10, 2008

Hello Stanislav,

This problem usually occurs when you have named your termbase with the signs “>" or " =" included.

To resolve this issue open MultiTerm and the termbase which causes the problem. Go to "Termbase" --> "Modify termbase definition". You will be then able to rename your termbase.

Open Translators Workbench and try to select the renamed termbase again.

I hope this helps.

Many Thanks,

Gareth Powell

Hi Gareth,
It's working indeed. Actually, I'd had the same idea but thought it couldn't be such a stupid mistake on my part. Well, it aparently was.icon_smile.gif

Thanks a lot and have a nice weekend!

Stanislav
