I have recently upgraded to a new version of Trados (FL 2007 Suite, from FL 2006). First Multiterm 2007 did not work properly with Trados Workbench, so I uninstalled and then reinstalled Multiterm 2007. And now I cannot find my termbases. I can find the Multiterm project files (xdp) but if I open them there are no termbases in them -- which was not the case before reinstallation. I have never paid particular attention to the physical location of those databases -- and now I cannot find them.

Can anyone help? (OS: Win XP, SP 2.)

Kind regards,
Attila

You should have backed them up May 18, 2009

MT termbases are located in c:\documents and settings\all users\application data\sdl international\multiterm\termbases
Your old termbases should be there in a folder called Backup
Open the MTMaster.mdb in Access - you'll find a table with the real names and display names of your termbases there including the paths where they should be stored.
This should allow you to restore your termbases.

Best
Jerzy

Thank you, Jerzy May 18, 2009

Thank you very much, Jerzy,
Some of the termbases were indeed in the folder that you indicated -- others were in other folders but your tip helped to locate them.
Kind regards,
Attila
