Add New Term in Editor only adds source term in Multiterm and appears as created by "Local"

I´ve finished a translation in Editor (Studio 2014) and I want to add now many terms to my termbase. I created an input model so that I don´t have to manually add some fields like the Subject, Project and Client that are identical for all the entries I want to add.
I select the row and then highlight the term in the Source and Target column and when I right click on Add New Term or Quick Add New Term in Editor two things happen:
- if I use an input model, only the source term (English) is added to the termbase while the field for the target term (Spanish) appears empty.
- if I don´t use an input model, the Spanish target term is added but as Danish (another language in the termbase settings).
How can I solve that? What am I doing wrong?
Moreover, all the terms I create from the Editor appear on the termbase as Created by "Local" even though in the termbase settings the user is set to my name. When I create entries directly in Multiterm desktop, they appear correctly as Created by "Myname". In Options, the local user name is correctly set to "Myname".
What do I have to do so that the entries I add to my termbase from the Editor appear as Created by the local user name I specified and not by "local"? I need that to be able to use it later as a Filter for export purposes.
