Trados Password Problem

Some time ago when working on an agency project (I think it was Scitech or some other agency) I was provided with a Siemens terminology manager glossary. I was recently trying to edit some entries, but on my present version of Trados it now asks me for a user name and password. (I was able to use super and admin before). And now it's impossible to edit, export or manage the terminology.

I am really miffed by this development and hope there is a fix so that I can build on this glossary.

Has anyone experienced this problem and found a fix?

Thanks very much!

Harold

...to Trados support.

Harold, you did not provide details regarding data format/software version. Was this a MultiTerm database (in which case, can you please indicate which version)?

Thanks, Ralf

Good morning, Ralf. Thank you very much for your reply. I apologise for not providing that information. It's Multiterm Ver. 5.5

Thanks,

Try loggin on as "guest" Aug 29, 2004

Hi again,
Can you try and get access in non-exclusive mode?
(This won't let you export or edit entries, but at least you could see them...)

HTH, Ralf

That works fine; I have no problem seeing the entries and Workbench has no problem searching and presenting suggestions; I just need to get in and add/edit entries. That's the problem.

Open it directly from Multiterm Aug 30, 2004

It has happened me a couple of times, when I open the Multiterm it doesn't allow me to edit it. While that MT window is open, I simple reopen it using FILE > OPEN TERMBASE > EXCLUSIVE ACCESS MODE (YES).

Regards,

Clarisa

Check read only attribut Aug 30, 2004

Hello,

Multiterm always ask for a password, if the mtw file is read only.

If this is not the problem, you can open the mtw file i an editor. Search for "super". The password and the possible user names are in clear text in the file
