Hey guys!

Is there a way to export termbase definitions (.xdt files) from termbases in MultiTerm 2014 and import them in other existing termbases? I can't figure it out...

Can only be used to create a termbase Feb 26, 2015

You can export a termbase definition from an existing termbase and use it to create a new modified termbase based on that definition, but you cannot import a definition into an existing termbase.

If you want to modify the structure of an existing termbase, use the wizard to modify the definition. Note that you can only add fields, but not remove any existing ones. If you need to do this, the way is the one described above: export the definition, create a new termbase based on this and adapt the definition.
