Dear colleagues,

my multiterm does not display target languages after uploading termbase. It is Multiterm 7 version. I can see all the left part of the muliterm interface, but the left window, which is supposed to show the target languages is completely empty. Smb has ever encountered this? Thanx

Multiterm Convert XML files cause problems upon import in Multiterm 2007 Sep 24, 2007

Same thing here with converted Excel files. Right, large pane shows error message: invalid pointer.

This is a scandal! Jul 30, 2008

About 4 years and a couple of "upgrades" later, since when I installed MT IX, I keep getting Multiterm glossary as XML files that are not usable because target term does not show up in WB windows.

I know that there is a workaround somewhere, one should fiddle with the xml in a text editor or change some option in the import process. However it is so complicated that I cannot remember it from one occasional project to the next, and several times per year I am forced to spend hours looking in the forums and elsewhere for the solution.

I noticed this immediately and wanted to go back to normal MTW files, but apparently MT IX cannot cohexist on the same system with the old Multiterm 6, and disinstallation without loosing databases seems to be more cumbersome than disinstalling Norton AV products.

Now I have to run, if I want to find the solution before the client fires me... icon_frown.gif
