A customer sent me a file with ending mtw. When I used Multiterm convert the software saved a lot of files to the same folder, but non of them seems to be fitting into Multiterm 2007. There is one xml, one mtw and one xdt.
How can I use this stuff in Multiterm 2007?
Thanks for help!

Create a new termbase, then import May 6, 2009

Good morning, Heinrich,

There is one xml, one mtw and one xdt.
How can I use this stuff in Multiterm 2007?

The .xdt file is the termbase definition created on the basis of the .mtw file (which is the old MT 95+ format). Use this definition to create a new termbase, then import the .xml file.

HTH, Ralf
