Hello,

I am discovering that I definitely need a termbase, which recognizes simple terms.
But I would like to know three things:

1. How to create one from scratch (empty), and what extension it will get? And can I do it in Excel for example? Or do I need to create it within SDL?
2. Can I copy them from somewhere?
3. Can I add / delete terms from the termbase (must be possible)

Let me know if you can help me out here. Many thanks Barbara

Probably a few ways to do this... Feb 24, 2014

... but I think the easiest based on your description is to use the Glossary Converter. I created a quick video and put it here to explain what I meant. I got a little carried away and created a TM on the fly, visited the OpenExchange and started the translation from scratch, but it’s still less than 10 mins and might be helpful as a reference to anyone getting started : http://youtu.be/2HFAMiPbQJs

You can also create the termbase using MultiTerm and you can find good references in the Welcome View for Studio and also here: http://wp.me/s2xDjK-imrthtl

Hi Paul,

Thanks very much. Super the video! The creation of the termbase went ok. But it doesn't want to recognize my termbase. Can I put a printscreen in here? Nope. Can I send you a printscreen. There is something about the languages. Still don't get it.

... use screenshots but you have to store them somewhere else and link to them.

Feel free to email me though : pfilkin@sdl.com
