Hello everybody!

I am working on a Multiterm database whose entries are all from the same source text.

Before adding entries from another source text, I would like to enter the source for these entries. Do I have to enter the source for each entry individually to do so or is there a way to enter the source for all entries at the same time?

Any help is appreciated!

Marc

Each individually, I'm afraid, within MT.
So maybe you'll want to export the termbase into word or excel and add an extra column for 'source'.
Stay in a (large scale) editable environment (word/excel); only when you think the thing is ready --only then you should convert it into a termbase (a new one is easiest).
Apply changes on an entry level (microscopic scale) as required.

thanks Sep 24, 2007

Thanks for your help.
I exported the termbase and opened it with Excel. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to add an additional source column since the document was read-only.
I then tried to save a copy of the document, but there again it wasn't possible to import its entries into a new database.

Did I overlook something?
