I am new to Trados (I've got Studio 2011) and have been trying to get to grips with it in the last few days as it looks like I will need to use it soon for an upcoming project.
I have watched several video tutorials and followed the start-up guides to the letter after downloading SP1 as requested. However, and after several failed attempts at creating a new termbase and importing one through the Termbase Wizard (from what I've read, I should be able to get the SDL Multiterm 2001 SP1 and SDL Multiterm IX (version 6.x), I keep getting the following error message: "Object reference not set to an instance of an object". I've done a search online but this error is quoted on many instances but not on this one in particular. Any idea as to how to resolve it?
Neither is MT 2001, but I think you are referring to MT2011...
What kind of attempts were those? What was the source format of the termbase conversion?
And finally which application gives you the mentioned error?
Also, I have tried to download the Autosuggest Dictionary English-Spanish from SDL downloads page. I get a WinRAR folder with a bpm file but when I try to save it, I get the following message: "Cannot create eu-en-es-en-us-es.bpm. Access is denied". Any assistance or guidance would be much appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
Did you try to download it again? Errors like this one with archive files are mostly a problem of not fully downloaded files.
