Hi all,

A similar problem has been discussed before, http://www.proz.com/post/307039 - I think it may be exactly the same problem I'm having - but Maciej didn't seem to find the answer he needed, so I thought I'd post it again in the hope that someone can help.

I have successfully converted a large Excel glossary using MultiTerm Convert, creating an xcd and an xml file (I know it was successful because I got a message telling me that the conversion of 2600 entries was successful, and when I opened the xml file I could actually see them).

I then went to SDL Multiterm, created a new Termbase by loading the termbase definition file which I had created. The 2 languages of the bilingual glossary were listed as Index Fields. I skipped the "Descriptive Fields" step as I don't have descriptive fields. The Termbase creation wizard was complete.

I then clicked on Termbase Catalogue -> Import -> Create, and selected the xml file as the import file. Under "Process import entry as follows" I selected "Add import as new". That wizard was complete.

But.... the termbase was empty. What have I done wrong?? I think I've followed the Multiterm manual as much as I could - any help would be appreciated.
Thanks,

Nesrin

Hi Nesrin,

I then clicked on Termbase Catalogue -> Import -> Create, and selected the xml file as the import file. Under "Process import entry as follows" I selected "Add import as new". That wizard was complete.

...but it only created the import definition (which, strictly speaking, wasn't necessary, as the termbase definition is based on the very same content). Use Process to execute the import.

The Help function lists the different buttons and their functions.

HTH, Ralf
