Hi everyone! I couldn't find any Turkish-English autosuggest dictionaries on the net. Is it possible to create an autosuggest dictionary from a searchable PDF dictionary that I have??

You will need the Professional version of Studio or buy separately the Autosuggest Plug-in. You can then:

- Import into AutoText after converting your PDF to text
- Convert to text your dictionary and build a Translation Memory to create an Autosuggest dic.

Autosuggest dictionary or Termbase? Nov 8, 2013

Autosuggest dictionaries are created from your Translation Memories, so you would need to somehow get your PDF dictionary into a TM first.

Another alternative is creating a Multiterm Termbase (which is like a glossary). To do this, you can either enter all the terms manually, one by one, or you can import them from an Excel file, either using Multiterm or the Glossary Converter app from SDL's Open Exchange.

Maybe this will help guide you through the process:

Good! If you build a Termbase to put your expressions in, this is even much better because you won't need to buy the Autosuggest plug in: Autosuggest will work in any version reading from your termbases. Also, if I'm not wrong, the AutoText import will also work without the need to upgrade your Trados version.
