Hello everyone.

I have Trados 2006 (7.5) which includes MultiTerm. Similar to the topic posted just before this one, I have been experienced an issue.

I have sucessfully created a MultiTerm Glossary from a plain two-column bilingual glossary Excel file (no fancy stuff, no descriptive fileds, etc. just two fields).

The terms have been also sucessfully imported into a new MultiTerm termbase (I can see them and browse them in multiterm with their two fields).

I go to the Workbench and activate the Term Recognition feature and also declare the glossary I just created to be used. When I go to open the first translation unit, I get this message in the workbench status bar:

(-2147467259): (-2147467259): Illegal Index

I have re-organized both my Translation Memory and my Term Base, but the problem remains.

Any advice you can provide would be truly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Rafael.

In Translator's Workbench I selected:

Options>Term Recognition Options>Termbase

then under 'Language Selection' set the source language as Spanish and the target language as English (I think they were both set as English originally).

I have the same problem: error message with every new entry in workbench. I tried Tim's suggestion, but to no avail. Mind you, Workbench and MultiTerm seem to be working fine, so I just ignore it. Must be the growing pains of the SDL-Trados monster of Frankenstein.

Fix worked Jun 13, 2006

I got the same message as Marinus and Rafael. I followed Tim's suggestion - changed the target language to Norwegian (both source and target were set to English) - and voila! it worked. Thanks, Tim!

More than 3 years later, I've had the same problem, and Tim's suggestion works. Just wanted to say thanks!

Another solution Sep 30, 2010

I had exactly the same problem, but neither of the solutions proposed worked fine in my case (source and target language files were empty).

The solution I found was to uninstall Multiterm and reinstall it again doing a "Custom installation". When doing this, you are given the option to select many options during the installation. I enabled them all and it worked!

PS. Sorry not being more explicit with the options enabled, but I can't have access to them now, as it would mean having to reinstall it again!

I hope it works!
