In Multiterm 2007, there is an option under the Termbase menu to "Package/Delete" which saves the termbase out as an MDB file.

What is the Multiterm 2009 equivalent of this?

I need to save out as a MDB file.

Thank you!

MT 2009 has no equivalent for this.
The purpose of this option was to export/delete a termbase from the crazy termbase management system used in Multiterm iX/7.x.
MT 2009 doesn't longer use this system.
Just find your SDLTM file and make a copy icon_smile.gif

You can't do it.
MT 2009 doesn't longer save termbases as MDB.
If you want to send the termbase to a person using MT 2007, use the XML export.

Thanks! Jun 14, 2010

Wonderful, thank you for the clear answer!

Once I export the termbase in XML format, how will the user then import my termbase?

First, save the definition of the initial termbase (Catalog pane, Definition, rigth click).
Second, ask the user to create a new termbase using this definition (Create termbase wizard).
Third, he should import the data using the standard import methed (see the Termbase menu and the awful Import window, Proceed button).

That would find the Translation Memory.
In case of MultiTerm look for SDLTB files.
If you want to keep the ending "*.mdb", just open that termbase in MultiTerm 2009. It will keep that ending, however the format will be updated, so an *.mdb" file saved with MT2009 ist NOT readable for MT2007 user. To make MT2009 termbases available for MT2007 users follow Grzegorz advice.

direct access to .sdltm file in Trados 2009/2011 Jul 10, 2012

Hello everyone,

since there is no "package database" option available in newer versions of Tradso, how do I get direct access to an .SDLTM file?

The problem is that my newly created database will not recognise in Studio's 2009 term recognition options. Therefore I would like to attach it manually, but do not know in which directory the actual database is stored.

Any suggestion to this problem are welcome.

Thank you very much beforehand
