Can somebody please help me by explaining step by step how I should import a .csv file in Multiterm, since I am a real fool when it comes to software.

I received a tagged text and a glossary in excel (a .csv file). I've tried converting it to Multiterm (first made a .xls file from the .csv file)but I cannot seem to let it run properly.

What should I do?

Thanks in advance,


Multiterm 7.0

.xdt and .xml Sep 19, 2005

Hi Mireille,
I'm still using MT 6.2.x, but I believe the conversion process should be the same as using MultiTerm Convert 7.

MT Convert yields two files:

- Use the .xdt file to create a new termbase in MT.
- Import the .xml file, which contains the entries.

HTH, Ralf
