I can not add the term in the termbase in Trados Studio 2009 SP3. Message: "failed to bring the type of object Sdl.MultiTerm.COM.TerminologyConnectorCOM type Sdl.MultiTerm.Client.Connectors.ITerminologyConnectorCOM".

can't add term Feb 17, 2014

i have also lots of problems with MultiTerm as of today. i work with sdl trados multiterm 2014, a completely different version, but still. i can't add terms, terms that are in the database, are not found, even after a reorganisation and also in a completely new (and therefore small) database. i was trying things for hours this morning.

MultiTerm / adding not possible Feb 18, 2014

The situation is today still the same, I cannot enter new entries in the MultiTerm database. The error message I get is "Invalid argument".
Also, the browse window shows only a small part of the entries.

I work with SDL MultiTerm 2014 - 11.0.1073.0
Windows XP
Java version 7 Update 25 build 1.7.0_25-b16

On friday, it worked quite ok, I could enter new entries. On monday morning MT was broken. I didn't change anything in the computer setup.

I miss the function terribly.
