Dear colleagues,

I have a large term-base in the Russian-English language pair (SDL Multiterm 8.1), but all the Russian terms have been entered as English and vice versa. Is there an opportunity to invert the languages without inverting the content?

Thank you!

re-import Oct 19, 2011

Create a new glossary with correct languages and import entries into it.

UPD. With overriding.

Try to create another glossary with the correct definition and then on import map the incorrect languages to the correct.

Sergei, what do you mean by overriding? If a new term base is created empty, what will be overridden?

xml solution Oct 20, 2011

Dear colleagues,

Thank you for the answers. Tried it, but anyway the terms were getting into the wrong language. As far as I understand, it is because the programme only gives the opportunity to select languages, not their order (source-target are actually distinguished only when viewing the base). I found an "inhuman" method - export termbase as xml and then replace all EN with RU and vice versa.
