The client has sent a glossary consiting of 8 files with various suffixes. With the old Multiterm, I was used to opening the one with MTW suffix but with the new Multiterm, I can't open it. Am I missing something or is it incompatible?

Thank you in advance for any help.

What files exactly? Mar 13, 2004

Hi Esther,
Can you please specify what files were sent?
(I'm predominantly interested in the file extensions - no worries if you cannot disclose the file name.)

TIA, Ralf

I realized I had to convert the old termbase into XML. Then I did a lot of operations which I neither understand nor recall (involving some wizard ), and in the end it worked, I now have the termbase supplied by the client up and working.

Thanks Ralf for offering help.

Glad it worked Mar 13, 2004

Thanks, Esther,

I realized I had to convert the old termbase into XML.

I take it the files sent by your client were a termbase created under MT 5/5.5?

Then I did a lot of operations which I neither understand nor recall (involving some wizard ),

The wizard is the MT Convert utility - what it does can be summarised in two main steps: first, it creates the database structure (the definition - .xdt) and second, it creates an XML file whose structure matches the database definition created.

HTH, Ralf
