Hi all, After several hours of struggle I finally managed to import my .txt glossary into Multiterm. But O surprise my lovely accented characters (my glossary is EN-FR) have disappeared to leave room to squares, just as decorative but not very meaningful. What did I do wrong this time? I can't find anything in the documentation that I have. Thanks. Fred

Suggestion 1: Save the txt file (with the diacritics comme il faut) as a unicode file (in Notepad, select instead of ANSI the encoding UTF8). Then repeat the whole MultiTerm import procedure.
Suggestion 2: use multiTerm Convert routine to create a new TermBase and to fill it up.
Suggestion 3: convert the TXT file to XLS and continue with Suggestion 2: See my profile for the video on how to use MultiTerm convert: Does MultiTerm Convert give you indigestion? Download the ZIP file and unpack its contents, then click on the MultiTerm Convert.html. You will see a movie, about 7 minutes long, on how to use the program to create a MultiTerm database from an XLS file.
