I just started using Trados 2009 and Multiterm 2009. Previously, I was using Trados 2007 but not Multiterm. My operating system is Windows 7 64 bit. I am trying to convert a file from Excel 2010 to Multiterm 2009. On step 4/9 of the wizard, I get the error "The conversion process could not be initialised properly. Excel can not be started." Has anyone had this problem?

Are you using Excel 2010 32 bits or 64 bits? Dec 5, 2010

I found this article in the SDL Knowledge Base:

http://talisma.sdl.com/display/2/kb/article.aspx?aid=3394

They say that MultiTerm 2009 SP3 supports the Office 2010 applications in their 32 bits versions but not in their 64 bits versions.

You say that you have Windows 7 64 bits but what about office? Are you using Office 2010 32 bits or Office 2010 64 bits?

(all this assuming that you have MultiTerm 2009 Service Pack 3)

Try other formats Dec 5, 2010

I don't have Excel 2010, and I don't know how to solve this particular problem, but as a quick fix, you can save the Excel file as a csv or tab-delimited text file, and convert that using the "Spreadsheet or database exchange format" option in MT Convert.

32-bit I think Dec 5, 2010

I believe I have the 32-bit version of Office installed. I will try other formats and see if that works. I will be away from my office now, so I apologize if I don't answer any questions until tomorrow. Thanks very much for your help.
