Hi there,

I have a TBX file, as well as an XML file that came in the zip file and I'm trying to figure out how to import it into MultiTerm. I'm running the latest 2009 version.

Would anyone have any suggestions?

Thank you very much.

Use MultiTerm convert Jul 6, 2009

On the third screen you will be asked for the source file format - select "TermBase eXchange format" and follow the wizzard.

Again: use MultiTerm Convert Jul 6, 2009

which is a separate program, installed on your PC. You can find it in the same program group as MultiTerm itself. Should you not have it, so you did not install it - please refer to MT handbook how to install that program.

I do not have a TBX file to test Jul 7, 2009

but are you sure, that you have specified the index fields (languages) properly?
This is step 5 from all steps, at least when converting Excel.
Otherwise I would need the file to test.

Thanks / No options...? Jul 7, 2009

Hi Jerzy,

First off, thanks for your continued assistance.

To answer your question, I'm not specifying them - I don't have that option to do so.

You can see my options for Steps 6 and 7 of MultiTerm Convert at the following link with the TBX file I am using:

Thanks!

Best.

No step 5? Jul 7, 2009

Sorry, but I really do not know the process for TBX.
Would you bother sending me the corresponding file to info at doku minus trans dot de?
This is the only way for me to check, what could be gone wrong.
