Hello,

I would like to transfer a simple excel glossary in Multiterm. I have Multiterm 2015 and I have downloaded the glossary converter tool. I am able to drap and drop the excel file to the converter and it gives me a TMX file, which seems to be worthless. I have seen a lot of tutorial videos and they are showing me a Multiterm Converter that I can found in Multiterm 2015.

I am tired ...

Can someone explain me how to do that ? I am a translator, not a diplomed IT specialisticon_smile.gif

Thanks in advance for your help!!

Hélène

TMX is the wrong format Nov 4, 2015

Hi Hélène,

You need to open the Glossary Converter and go into Settings. There select TBX as your output format and close the window with OK. Drag your file onto the Glossary Converter and it will produce your TBX file.

Create your Termbase on MultiTerm, if you don't already have one, and import the TBX file. That should then be it.

Regards.
Ben

Hi Hélène Nov 4, 2015

It looks to me (please correct me if I am wrong!) that you are confusing two completely different things: the Glossary Converter from Open Exchange (which you have downloaded!) and SDL Multiterm 2015 Convert which is part of Multiterm and can be found in menu Start - SDL Multiterm 2015 - SDL Multiterm 2015 Convert.

If you select Termbase file in the settings instead of TMX then you 'll get what you want. No need to convert to TBX first.
