I was given an XML file which is an export from a Multiterm online database.

I want to create and import it in a new Multiterm file-based termbase.

The problem is that I don't have the xml structure file (.xdt) to recreate the termbase structure.

Can anybody advice me how to proceed in this case?

Hi Ivaylo

Without the Termbase Definition you are quite lost here.

What you could try (to at least get the terms) is create a termbase with all the languages you know that are included in this XML and run an import without ticking the box for "Fast Import". Then everything will be imported that fits at least some position in your created termbase structure.

But clearly it would be easier to ask for the Termbase Definition. ^^
