Hello,
I cannot figure out how to import terms from a Word lexicon into Multiterm.
The terms are displayed in a two-colum table (English/French).
Any help would be appreciated.

Copy your two columns to Excel, then use Multiterm Convert.

Use Excel, as adviced by Grzegorz.
You`ll find a detailed description "how to" here.

Step 1 successful but... Apr 9, 2009

Thanks for your help.
I selected the wo columns and pasted them in an Excel file.
The conversion process wnt well, except that only the English terms (Source) are displayed... Where are the French?
Maybe I forgot to specify headers or something?

Please follow the script exactly Apr 9, 2009

as it is crucial to do all operations as requested.

You have to pay special atteintion to the step, where you set the relation between the column header and the desired index field. You MUST do this for ALL your language columns. It is not enough to set only one language, ALL language columns must have an assigned index field.
Most probably you did that just for the English column and not for the others.

Best regards
Jerzy
