Hello everyone, I really hope somebody can help me because I'm tearing my hair out!

A termbase which I have used successfully with previous projects now doesn't seem to work. In termbase viewer the languages appear the wrong way around. When I go into Project Setting>Termbases I see that my project language indexes are not specified, but I can't work out why.

I don't know whether I have to change something in Multiterm or in Trados, I've tried creating a new termbase but I have the same problem. Does this mean the problem is with the project rather than the termbase?

Any suggestions will be appreciatedicon_smile.gif

Thanks

Do the languages match? Apr 24, 2015

Hi Julia

Does your termbase include the two languages of your Studio project?
Try in Studio to remove the termbase and then to add it on again. When you do this, Studio will issue a message telling you that the indexes have been adjusted. Check what happens at this stage.

Thank you! Apr 24, 2015

Incredible...I just removed all the termbases (checked and unchecked) I had in the project setting window and added my current terbase again...and it worked!

I can't believe I spent all morning stressing over this!

Thank you very much Waltericon_biggrin.gif
