I just upgraded to Trados 6.5.5. from Trados 5.0 on the weekend, including converting my old MultiTerm database into a new one. When I open both the Trados Workbench and MultiTerm, however, the Workbench says that MultiTerm is not running (Error 50152).

In checking the Help listing for that topic it mentions something about a fuzzy index, but I am not seeing a "Create fuzzy index" option in the new MultiTerm menu like there used to be in the older version. All I see is "Reorganize Termbase" which I have tried several times, but this does not seem to solve the problem. I am stumped.

Any helpful hints MUCH appreciated!

Hi Rebecca,
As usual, it will be helpful to know the full and exact versions of the software you're using - including the build number (go to Help - About... if needed).

I just upgraded to Trados 6.5.5. from Trados 5.0 on the weekend, including converting my old MultiTerm database into a new one.

What exactly do you mean by "a new one" - did you convert it to MTiX, or to MT 5.5?

When I open both the Trados Workbench and MultiTerm, however, the Workbench says that MultiTerm is not running (Error 50152).

Have you had a look at the relatedKnowledge Base article, which you will get by simply entering the error number?

In checking the Help listing for that topic it mentions something about a fuzzy index, but I am not seeing a "Create fuzzy index" option in the new MultiTerm menu like there used to be in the older version.

It would appear that you're using MTiX (again, which version?), in which case you need to set the Terminology Provider in the Workbench window (see the KB articles for detailed instructions).

On a general note, did you register the new software components after installation? (Start - Programs - Trados 6.5 - Register Trados 6.5)

HTH, Ralf

Try changing Termbase settings in Workbench Jan 31, 2005

I am assuming you are using MultiTerm iX. If this is the case make sure you have activated MultiTermiX link in Workbench: Options=>Term Recognition Options=>Termbase=>MultiTerm version: MultiTerm iX.

I had similar problem some time back and managed to find the solution (addmittedely after a prolonged periods of futile clicking and head scratching).

Amen and hallelujah! It's working! The problem was indeed the termbase setting in the Workbench.
You are gentlemen and scholars, thank you very much!
