I've created a Multiterm base, and I am pretty sure it was correct. Data imported fine, etc. I even reorganized it, just to be sure. Now in SDL Edit (which I haven't used in a long time), I have selected the Multiterm base, correctly again (pretty sure). Now when I go to next segment, it get the "thinking" cursor, but no match ever appear. Any idea? Thanks.

Are you refering to SDLX or Studio 2009? Mar 1, 2011

This is a BIG difference...

SDLX Mar 1, 2011

Hi Jerzy,

SDLX, actually SDL Edit 2007 SP3 and Multiterm 2007.

Could you please try to register MultiTerm Mar 1, 2011

I do not mean activating online, but registering in system registry.
As I do not have any MT 2007 installation here, I must rely on my memory.
In the installation folder of MultiTerm (c:\program files\sdl international...) you will find two *.bat files with "SelfRegister" in name. Run the one without" no_silent".
This could be helpful.

Thanks Jerzy. Actually the client realized they should have sent the Termbase version of the glossary rather than the Multiterm version (if I am getting this right, since I am new to using SDLX and glossaries, being a Trados-only translator usually). So, they will send the Termbase version, and we'll see if that solves it. At this point I prefer not to explore other solutions. Thanks.

The work-around worked so I don't know Mar 2, 2011

Just for the record, using the Termbase format worked correctly. So at this point I don't know what was wrong with the Multiterm glossary. If I get more information in the future I shall post it here. Thanks Jerzy.
