Apologies in advance for a potentially dumb question... I have recently upgraded from Trados 7 to 2007 and Studio 2009. I managed to export my termbase and import it to Multiterm 2009 however when I try to Browse for it in Workbench 2007 I cannot find it. I don't seem to have it in .mtw format. Any ideas please?

2009 is not *.mtw Jun 8, 2011

Hi,

If you have now got an SDL MultiTerm 2009 termbase then the file you are looking for will be an *.sdltb and not an *.mtw. My guess that you are searching under the option for MultiTerm 5 as opposed to MultiTerm 9.

Regards

Paul

It's the only one I've got Jun 8, 2011

Hi Paul,

Thanks for your input. However, when I open Workbench 2007 and go to Options>Term Recognition Options the only Multiterm versions listed there are MultiTerm 5 and 8 and I can only browse for an .mtw file.

If you... Jun 8, 2011

... select MT8 are you given the option to select an *.sdltb. Might be a silly question but I'd just like to check.

Regards

Paul

That worked! Don't know why I didn't think of it. Thanks Paul - you're a lifesaver
