I'm just wondering whether anyone can clarify a couple of things for me. I'm still a student but have purchased SDL Trados Studio 2011 with my meagre savings and am now trying to learn to use it. I have downloaded Multiterm but am unsure about how to create termbases/add new terms.
This will certainly seem like a very thick question but how do I add terms I have found on a glossary available on the internet, for example http://www.cedefop.europa.eu/EN/Files/4064_en.pdf
which has some useful education-related terms for me? It doesn't appear to be possible to cut and paste into Multiterm so is the only way to enter these terms to manually type in each one? Since I'm totally new to Trados/Multiterm I obviously don't have any data in it so I'm wondering how I start to build up termbases that may of use as I start to use Trados to translate documents?
Apologies again for this terribly basic question, I would be grateful for any advice as am totally lacking in knowledge of CAT tools.
The very first step is putting your glossary in table format (one column per language), in an Excel worksheet for instance.
Once you have done this, as Isabelle suggested, you would use MultiTerm Converter to convert you table-format glossary into a usable MultiTerm termbase.
If you read the MultiTerm Help, you will find it useful.
