Hello everyone,
I need to know whether it is possible to import wordfast glossaries (thus .txt glossaries) as a Termbase for Trados.
If so, how can I do that?

thanks everyone,
Michele

Quite simple Jun 17, 2010

Hi Michele,
this should be quite simple, provided WF glossaries still use the tab-delimited format.

1. Open the WF glossary in Excel and use TAB as the column separator
2. Write the names of the languages in the first row of each column (e.g. A1 = English, B1 = Italian etc.)
3. Define a new termbase in MultiTerm
4. Use MultiTerm Convert to convert the Excel glossary to MultiTerm XML
5. Launch MultiTerm, open the new termbase and import the XML.

That should be all.

A more geeky method to get the same result :-) Jun 18, 2010
