I need you help with the following problem:

When I use Trados 6.5 and MultiTerm 5.5 together, MultiTerm always forgets the Input Model I activated for entering new terms, so that I have to re-activate it after every automatic search by Trados. This is quite annoying. Some more details for you:

I am using Trados, its automatic Term Recognition function, have set the "Term Recognition Options" to MultiTerm 5 (Trados 5), selected language combination and glossary. I have also opened MultiTerm v5.5.2.257, activated an input model, and whenever I try to add new terms via F3 I am prompted over and over again to select the Input Model, as it is apparently forgotten after each automatic search by Trados. I have no clue why this happens. So far it had always worked fine.

Does anyone have the same problem and have you found a solution to this problem?

Unfortunately, I cannot switch to MultiTerm iX as we are still using older Trados versions from time to time which don't support this and want to share the glossaries.

Thank you.

Best regards,
