Can't download "Microsoft Terminology Collection - German" from SDL OpenExchange

Hi all

I tried to download the "Microsoft Terminology Collection - German" from the SDL OpenExchange website. But after log in I receive the message "You are not licensed for any SDL products that link with this application."

But I have a licensed version of SDL Trados Studio 2009 Professional, including SDL Multiterm 2009 installed on my PC.

Do you have any ideas what is wrong here? Or did I miss something?

Thanks for your help

In between I was able to create the corresponding termbank on my own. Although the question remains why I was not able to download.

I have also tried to download this - it looks like it would be extremely useful.
But the site tells me:
You don't have the required software for this download. Please click here to buy SDL Desktop Products.

And in German:
Sie haben keine Lizenz für SDL Produkte, die mit dieser Anwendung verknüpft sind.

Both responses seem a little strange to me. I have Trados Studio 2009 SP3 and Multiterm 2009 SP4 - how much more up-to-date do I need to be?icon_wink.gif

Update: I have also done the conversion myself now. In case anyone is interested:

Download language required from

(these are all English - XXXX)

Convert/extract using ApSIC Xbench (free software) and export results to Tabbed Text file.

Open resulting TXT file in Excel and save as XLS

Convert and import using Muliterm Convert and Multiterm Desktop.

This may be useful for those looking for languages not offered on OpenExchange (English-German/English-French) - even after the download is fixed!
