Hi.
Does anyone know, whether it is possible or not to import third-party dictionaries (such as Promt or Lingvo) to Multiterm? Or to trados TM?
I was told, Trados can somehow use those dictionaries, but I can't find out how to make it use them.


Thanks in advance.

Elena

AFAIK, No Oct 19, 2006

As far as I know, it is not possible to link third-party dictionaries directly to Trados.

The only option is to export the data and create an import file in the correct format for Trados. However, most dictionaries do not allow that.

My dream is ... Oct 19, 2006

to know enough about the MultiTerm API to add those dictionaries to the stuff I have available locally (ie via Acess) in MultiTerm. ie without having to copy and transcribe and Convert and... you know... Just posting the request to the URL and formatting the response so that it gets through to where I can "Get Current Term". I have been looking (now and then) around for hints, but so far pretty much radio silence...

Whoever would spend his or her time on devising it, could retire rich in 6 months - just think of all MultiTerm users, who have to plug extra into leo.org for instance...

But, to quote Peter, AFAIK No (sg).

regards

Vito

Probably possible with a macro program like MacroMaker Oct 22, 2006

Elena,

I believe it is possible, using a macro program like MacroMaker (free, available here: http://members.ij.net/anthonymathews/MacroMaker.htm). Here is a suggestion I found:
