Hi, I hope someone has got a solution for this. I have SDL Trados Studio 2009 SP3, Trados Multiterm 2009 SP3 and SDL Trados 2007 Freelance Build 863. I do NOT have Trados Multiterm 2007 so there is no possibility to use MultiTerm Side by Side Tools I guess.
So far I have worked with Trados Multiterm 2009 together with Trados 2007 without any problems. But I have used only local MT termbases. However, one of my clients needs me to use a remote Multiterm 7 termbase now. Is it possible at all? I cannot even log on the server with my newer version and have not found any solution for SP3 on SDL Knowledge Base.
Thank you very much for your advice in advance.

Use MT7 Feb 18, 2011

Hello Michaela,
AFAIK, there is no way you can connect to a MultiTerm 7 server using MultiTerm 2009. I'm afraid you'll have to install MultiTerm 7 and use the Side-by-Side Tools.

The problem is that the older MultiTerm versions use the MDB (Microsoft Access) database format, while MultiTerm 2009 uses an XML-based one. You may have noticed that if you want to use an older termbase in MT 2009, the termbase needs to be upgraded first. This may, of course, be done on a local machine, but not on a remote server...
