Hi everyone,
I need your help as I got this problem with Trados: even though I have created the Termbase and I have it opened from Synergy>Open Termbase, I can not add a new term to it from the Tag Editor (i.e.: when right-clicking on a word and click on Add Term, the Set As Source/Target options are not enabled, neither is the Submit To Multiterm one).

Thx to everyone who helps,

I have exactly the same problem Jun 15, 2010

I can't add anything to the initial statement, except that a couple of times, when trying to create a new termbase, Trados told me I don't have a licence (which I have, of course). Now I do have Multiterm active, but I can't add to the termbase. What gives? Any good souls able to advance suggestions?
