Multiterm tutorial Aug 21, 2007

Onesime - check this post:

http://www.proz.com/post/648626#648626 or here http://trados-training.doku-trans.de/SDL%20Trados%20Training%20EN.pdf

Jerzy gave a Trados/Multiterm course at the last proz.com conference

You can also download the Multiterm tutorial from the SDL Trados website: www.translationzone.com/en/Images/MTExtract_en_tcm18-766.pdf

But your file looks more like a SDLX file to me.

MultiTerm or Translation Memory? Aug 21, 2007

mdb looks like MultiTerm glossary - just to keep the expressions neatly separated.

MDB - SDLX Translation Memory or MultiTerm Termbase Aug 22, 2007

Hi Gisela,

If it's SDLX TM

Try to open it with SDLX - tool Maintain. Then export the TM in an TMX format. Then create a TM in Trados Workbench with the same languages and import the TMX file to populate the memory.

Then use the new memory with Trados Workbench + TagEditor.

====

If it's MultiTerm glossary database. Open your MultiTerm and, depending on your MultiTerm version, Attach or Load the External Termbase (i.e. the mdb file).

Please let me know if you need more detailed explanation.

Gisela don't worry. it doesn't matter to me to whom a thread belongs.

Cheers
