I work for a big multilingual office in Switzerland which is thinking of buying Multiterm and I have a question: If we get Multiterm on a server is it possible to have each user select the language of the template or interface (German, French, Italian or English)? In other words, to have each user select the titles of the entry fields in his or her own language.

I have not been able to find the answer to this question on the Internet and would very much appreciate help with this question.

Thank you,

For the program interface, it's possible but the Italian is not available for the GUI.
The GUI language change doesn't affect the field names in the forms.

In other words, to have each user select the titles of the entry fields in his or her own language.

I suppose, no.
The client inheritates the form field names from the server.
The safest solution is to use English.

I'm not a MT server specialist, maybe an advanced customization is possible.

Thanks: Multiple template languages Nov 4, 2009

Thanks GG. I've now found this in the manual:

"Changing the User Interface Language
To change the user interface language:
1 From the View menu in MultiTerm, select User Interface Language. The User Interface
Language dialog box appears.
2 Select the language you want from the Language drop-down list. The choices are English,
German, French and Spanish. Japanese and Chinese are also available if you have installed
MultiTerm on a Japenese or Chinese operating system.
3 Click OK and restart MultiTerm to see the user interface in the language you chose from the
Language list.
D NOTE
See “What is the Layout Wizard?” on page 9-2 if you want to localize termbase field labels."

Thanks again.

Paul

Please, note, some localized Multiterm versions may be somehow funnyicon_smile.gifhttp://www.proz.com/forum/sdl_trados_support/149941-trados_2009_misleading_german_user_interface_finish_beenden.html
