Hello everybody,

I have to translate a document with Tageditor/workbench. The client asked for a TM in Excel. Can you tell me how I have to do to create a glossary from Trados 2007?

Thank you very much for your answer.

Ask them what they really want.
When you translate using a tool like Trados 2007 the TM is built simultaneously. This TM you can deliver in different formats, but never in Excel.
If they want a glossary, this means extra work for you. A glossary is a dictionary in the form of a two column table or a database (Multiterm with Trados).

Ask them if a TMX will be suitable. It's easier for you to generate and probably easier for them to use. There are ways and means of converting a TMX file to XLS, but the metadata will be lost (obviously).
