Hello everybody !

I have Trados Studio and I am used to use the TM along with Multiterm.

However, my client wants me to work with Workbench. Probably because they cannot open Trados Studio's format or something like that.

I have been using Workbench on its own for a couple of days and I was wondering if it was possible to use Multiterm 2009 and use all the features I normally use when I translate in Studio (auto-insert terms that are in the database, add terms, etc...) while working with Workbench.

I have already been looking for answers on Proz and I found out that I can open Multiterm in Workbench. I am then asked which version I am currently using. The problem is that it goes up to Multiterm 8. I tried anyway and I managed to open the database but I did not find how to add terms or insert the ones that were already in it.

Basically, here are my questions:
- Can I use Multiterm 2009 along with Workbench by saying that I am using Multiterm 8 in the term recognition options ? Is it meant to be used that way ?
- How do I add new terms ? (The shortcuts seem to be different from Trados Studio and I have nothing new in my word interface).
- How do I insert terms saved in the database ? Is there any auto-suggestion option like in Studio ?

Many thanks !

Create a TTX file in Trados 2007 and work with Studio Sep 19, 2010

this is the easiest and most clean solution. Then you can deliver clean file and a bilingual ttx.
