Hi everyone,

I just uploaded the latest beta for the GlossaryConverter app. If you don't know it, it's a tool to convert between spreadsheets (and some other other terminology formats) and SDL termbases.

Check the change list to see if it's worth downloading for you:
  • Excel multi-line format (dictionary style)
  • Possibility to directly define Field Content Types (bool, number, multimedia...) when creating a termbase
  • Themes for the User Interface
  • Option to convert every format directly into every other format
  • UI improvements in the Field Definition Dialog (right click on columns to change values).
  • Improved stability around Excel errors (less zombie processes after errors)
  • fix: newlines in field values caused messed up Excel and UTX files
  • fix: certain types of tbx files caused crashes
  • fix: tmx files were not standards compliant and didn't open in some tools

Any feedback about bugs or features is welcome.

Cheers, Gerhard

Great tool May 4, 2014

I'll wait for the final release, but may I say here that it's a great tool and if you haven't tried it yet - do it now! It's very simple to use and does exactly what it says it does.

I've used the previous versions and it is so much easier and quicker than the corresponding Trados workflow.
