What is the best way to export a SDL Multiterm termbase for use in MemoQ?

Should I use Multiterm Convert or a tool like Glossary Converter? I've used Glossary Converter earlier, long time ago, and it worked fine. Now it crashes as soon as I try to load the termbase files though (it's an old version of Glossary Converter).

So I have the Multiterm termbases ready-made already, just need to be able to use them in MemoQ also (I use both CAT tools).

I recommend getting Glossary Converter to work, exporting to TBX, and then importing into a memoQ termbase.

It's simple... Mar 6

In Multiterm you open the chosen Termbase, choose Export option and Default export definitions at the top, then right-click Export on the right, choose Process and when you click Save as, simply name the file somehow in File name (e.g. My Termbase), click Next on the panel and you will produce XML file that MemoQ will upload as Termbase (how to do it, you can find online in MemoQ help)

I did it with very large IATE termbase and it worked fine.

Cheers,
K.
