Hello, I am working with Trados Freelance 6.5.5, and Multiterm iX (6.0.1). I have never worked with Multiterm before, but was sent a termbase to use locally for a project. I installed Multiterm, attached the termbase, and opened the termbase as instructed. when I enter a search term, the source word shows up in the project pane, but when I click on it I get the error message "an invalid character was found in text content". Can't seem to find any info on this at the Trados site (surprise surprise). ANy help would be greatly appreciated. The client is clueless on this as well.
