I have added termbases to a project in Studio 2009, but the Termbase Recognition window says' no open termbase' . It allows me to add a new term - but won't recognise any terms in the text at all! Its extremely frustrating as I have a tight deadline. Has anyone got any suggestions?



Thanks

Lorraine

Did you use Workbench in the meantime? Feb 27, 2012

Most certainly the answer is yes.
Please use the Side-by-Side tools to repair Multiterm.
Close Studio, go to C:\Program Files (x86)\SDL\SDL MultiTerm\MultiTerm8\SideBySide\_Repair2009.cmd
Right click this file and run it as administrator.
After the process has finished (some error messages may appear, do not bother) MT should work again.

Upgrade to Studio 2011, such problem does not exist there.

Termbase opens but no terms found Feb 27, 2012

Thanks Jerzy,

Yes, I did open workbench - against my better judgement, I tried to use it for a bilingual project sent to me for review in Trados 2007.

I did as you suggested - but a dialogue box opened and closed too quickly for me to see what it did. Now the termbases are open - but it still doesn't recognise any terms which are clearly in there.

Could I uninstall 2007 - would that help?

Thanks

You must run the tool Feb 27, 2012

Double click the file then. The tool runs quite a while, so if it closes immediately, the problem is bigger.
Uninstalling T2007 is making no sense at all, as the damage is already there and will not be repaired by the uninstall.
If it does not help, use the tool from here http://kb.sdl.com/article.aspx?article=3420&p=1

That did the trick! Feb 27, 2012

Jerzy - I can't thank you enough for taking the time to respond.
It did take some time but it worked.

Thanks so much!
