Hallo everybody,

I've to export all the MultiTerm 2009 termbase's entries in TBX or tmx. file extension for the exchange with another CAT-Tool (in this case Across). How does it work it?

Multiterm has various export options ... Oct 21, 2010

... but not to TMX format, as this is an exchange format for translation memories (TMs) and not for termbases (TMs and termbases are two different things!).

Assuming that Across can import the TBX format, you can export the content of your Multiterm termbases in TBX format as follows:
in Multiterm, go to the 'Catalog' view, click on the 'Export' level of the corresponding termbase. This will display a list of export functions. Select 'TBX (LISA 2002)', right-click and select 'Process'. This starts a wizard, which will ask you the relevant questions to export your file (intuitive).

For Across it was "default import definition" Oct 21, 2010

Hi Walter!
Thank you again.
I got in confusion: I meant .xml and not .tmx! I don't why I read it wrongicon_frown.gif
I was able to to the export and to reimport it in Across.
For other users who want to make the same: select in the menu "default export definition" with the richt-click ans select "Process".
It works only in this way: I tried all the other export options and they aren't accepted by Across.

Thank you again Walter
Vittorio

Good to know it worked .. Oct 21, 2010

... but how did you import the definition (structure of the entry)?

Did you need to define a new termbase in Across and map the fields accordingly?

By the export in Trados you can select the target or the languages Oct 21, 2010

By the export you can select the target or the languages, if you want. Otherwise, as I did, just import it without ordering it according to index but just to entries number.
In Across you can just import with user interaction or without it so that all the doubtful units will be saved in another TBX file.
In Across you can even add files with additional properties before the import but I don't know what it meant with it.
Across in quite simpler as Trados.....

Cheers
Vittorio
