Dear colleagues,

Please kindly excuse if I'm asking something too basic.

When I look for Multiterm in Tools > Templates and Add-Ins Multiterm 7 .dot is not there. Therefore, I cannot choose it.

Could you please tell me how to obtain it?

Thank you in advance!

Maria

In Tools/ Templates and Add-Ins use *Add...* and then you'll probably find the template in Program Files\TRADOS\MultiTerm\Templates (or where you installed the programme).

Hello Maria,

It is possible that the Multiterm7.dot template is missing from Word\Startup folder, which would cause this problem. You will need to copy the Multiterm7.dot file from:

C:\Program Files\SDL International\MultiTerm 2007\Templates

To

C:\Documents and Settings\(UserName)\Application Data\Microsoft\Word\STARTUP

We also have an article within the SDL knowledge base which has more information on this issue:

http://talisma.sdl.com/article.aspx?article=2086&p=1

I hope this helps.

Many Thanks,

Gareth Powell

SDL TRADOS - MULTITERM is nowhere Feb 9, 2009

Dear Ildiko, dear Gareth,

Thank you for your answers.
I've follwoed your instructions.

The result is ...
There is no Multiterm file installed in my computer .

Is that possible ? If so, how can I obtain the multiterm file ? I've bought the SDL TRADOS last year can I still obtain anything which may be missing?

Thank you again.
Maria

Hello Maria,

If the Multiterm 2007 folder is missing then Multiterm may not be installed. SDL Multiterm 2007 is a separate component and needs to be downloaded separately.

Please follow these instructions to download and install SDL Multiterm 2007 to your computer:

1. Please visit: https://oos.sdl.com/asp/products/ssl/account/default.asp

2. Login to your account

3. Go to "My Downloads"

4. Select the "SDL Trados 2007 Freelance" link

5. Please choose "SDL Multiterm 2007 (includes Service Pack 1)" and select "Download"

6. Save the file to your computer.

Once the file has downloaded, please double-click it and the program will install SDL Multiterm 2007.

I hope this helps.

Many Thanks,

Dear Gareth,

Thank you for your good, clear explanation. In the meanwhile I had already downloaded the files from TRADOS site . Exactly as you explain.

... An now .dot file, etc is already in place.

I see it in templates .
Now still one thing to be OK: workbench says Multiterm is not running. When I give instructions to translate the file it says multiterm is not running.

What should I do to make Multiterm run?

Thank very much.
Maria

Term Recognition... Feb 9, 2009

Hello Maria,

I'm glad that worked for you. The message you are receiving means that Translators Workbench is not set up to work with Multiterm 2007, known as Term Recognition.

To set up Term Recognition, please follow these instructions:

1. Open Translators Workbench
2. Go to Options > Term Recognition Options
3. Under Multiterm Version, choose Multiterm 7
4. Under Termbase Location please add your termbase by using the "+" button
5. Under Language Selection please choose the correct source and target languages as your translation
6. Press OK to save your changes

You may need to turn on Active Term Recognition, which means that translations of terms stored in MultiTerm are automatically suggested as you translate your documents. Please go to Options > Active Term Recognition to switch this feature on.

I hope this helps.

Many Thanks,

Gareth Powell
SDL Support Team
