I am wondering how to import .tbx file into MultiTerm 2007?

I would like to use it with SDL Trados 2007.

Please advise.

Thank you in advance!

One possible solution Apr 26, 2012

One possible solution:
1. Open the tbx file in Xbench
2. Under Xbench export the tbx file as a text document.
3. Open the text document in Excel and save it as an Excel file.
4. Convert the Excel file with SDL MultiTerm 2007 Convert
5. Import the converted file into an existing TB o create a new one.

This query is for 2007, since MultiTerm 2009, you can use MultiTerm Convert to convert TBX files into MultiTerm XML:
