Hello,

for a project I have received a mdb-base from customer. I try to convert it into xml for MT 2009. Base is rightly detected by Multi Term Convert after choosing "SDL Termbase Online" but after this following message appears:

file doesn't seem to be correct.

Can somebody help me please?


Many thanks in advance

Anne

Are you sure that it is a termbase? Mar 3, 2011

Because files in .MDB format can be of various kinds, I suggest that you make sure that this is really a termbase and not for example a TM.

Thank you Walter for your reply. It was indeed a huge TB with a lot of languages. This was perhaps the reason why...

My solution has been to open a document in Excel for each language I needed, to compare and clean, to make one document before converting and importing in Multiterm. A handyman solution, 2 hours work but effective. It works fine!!!

Have a nice day

Anne
