I just switched to Studio 2011. On opening a project with a termbase created with Multiterm 2009, I have the error "This termbase cannot be opened because it has been created with an unsupported version of Multiterm."
I tried recreating it with Multiterm 2011, same problem.

I noticed Multiterm 2009 is still installed, so I tried uninstalling it, then uninstalling Multiterm 2011 and reinstalling it. I created again the termbase, but I still have the same error. Any suggestion?

opened in Studio or Multiterm standalone? Oct 5, 2011

I might be wrong, but if you open a 2009-created termbase in Multiterm 2011 (not Trados 2011), it should be upgraded automatically by Multiterm 2011 and then be able to be used in Trados 2011, in which case you might want to make copies before upgrading in MT2011 so you can use them in Trados 2009 if you need to. The installation documents you have also go into more detail re compatibility.

According to the guides from Multiterm 2011, there is no upgrade required. Now, I seem to have fixed the problem after restarting (a few times) Multiterm and Studio... I hope this was not an issue that will come back!
