Hi everyone,

I need to create a new termbase file (.sdltb) for SDL Trados 2009, but I do no have Multiterm installed, I want to know if there is any way to create this file and then import t to SDL Trados 2009, or if someone can create a blank English>Spanish .sdltb file and send it to me so I can edit the file.

Thank you

What do you call a "blank .sdltb file"? Feb 28, 2011

A termbase has a user specific structure, as opposed to a TM that has a fixed structure.

This is why you need to create your termbase yourself depending on your needs.

What prevents you from installing Multiterm on your PC and create the termbase yourself?
