Hi Everybody,
Could anybody offer me any advice on how to import a plain-text tab delimited glossary (created in Wordfast) in to Trados (Studio 2009 demo version)?
I managed successfully import a TM which had been created in Wordfast and then converted to TMX format using the WF2TMX converter, but the same process does not work for the glossary. I get the message: 'This termbase cannot be opened because it has been created with an unsupported version of Mutiterm'.
Any advice for a novice greatly received,
David

Create an Excel list out of your tab-delimited file May 2, 2010

and create a Multiterm termbase from it.
A description (for MT 2007, but it did not change that much - only the access to termbase catalogue in Multiterm is easier now) can be found on my website.

Is there a way without Multiterm? May 2, 2010

Hi Jerzy,
Thank you for your reply and the useful link. I can of course create the excel file, but I do not have Multiterm (I'm using the 30 day demo version of Trados Studio 2009). Is using Multiterm the only way of converting and importing a glossary?
Kind regards
David

You cannot do it without Multiterm May 2, 2010

Hi David,

Multiterm is the terminology component of the SDL Trados software. I am afraid you will not get very far without it.

thanks for setting me straight May 2, 2010

Hi Astrid,
Thanks for setting me straight. I'm trying to import the glossary as part of an MA assignment comparing how two different CAT tools interact with the same TM and Glossary, but that’s cut this part of the study short.
Thanks for your help,
David
