Dear friends,
I badly need a help from you.
I was translating a file in SDL Trados 2011. Everything was fine. I was able to add/edit terms to the Termbase for about 2 hours. All of a sudden when i tried to edit a term only Source term was visible & there was no target term box visible. So i tried to edit in Multiterm 2011 (It was already in open. Whenever i use to work in Trados 2011, simultaneously i use to keep open the Multiterm also for quick reference/editing). But i was shocked to see that there was no termbase. When i browsed for the termbase within Multiterm, i could see no file in the "C" folder. Also i tried to find it out through 'Search" option from 'Start' button. But that too in vain. I closed both Trados & Multiterm & then reopened. Even i restarted the machine. But no use. Where has it gone? How could i recover the disappeared Termbase? Kindly help me as i have to submit the target file ASAP. Many Thanks in advance.
