I took part in short Trados training session last year and the trainer mentioned that it was possible to print out (e.g. for a client) terminology collected in a Multiterm glossary. The trainer said that the print out could be done as a bilingual glossary or in any other chosen format. Unfortunately, I did not manage to ask precisely how this can be done and I was hoping that my Trados manual would have the required information about how to do it. I was wrong here (not the first time).

Please does anyone of you know how to proceed?

No icon ? Feb 8, 2008

Hi,

You should normally have a "print" icon in your MultiTerm toolbar, on the right upper corner - that is, I think, if you're using MultiTerm iX or above...
Hope that helps ?

Regards,
Anne

Clicking the print icon allows to print only the current entry Feb 8, 2008

What I need is being able to print the whole of the glossary in a list of terms in both languages or otherwise.

Termbase menu Feb 8, 2008

There's an export option in the Termbase menu (Ctrl+Shift+E).

Three of the export definitions available are:

HTML export definition - exports source and target terms to a HTML table format, sorting them by source language.

Word Dictionary export definition - exports entries to Word RTF format with a two-column dictionary type layout. Use this export definition to produce print dictionaries.

Tab-delimited export definition - exports all entries to a tab-delimited text format that can be opened by other spreadsheet programs or database systems. Note that this export definition should only be used to export content from termbases in which all entries have the same structure.

The Word Dictionary export definition is probably the one you want.

This is what I do... Feb 8, 2008

Open MS Word. Open your MultiTerm glossary.

On MS Word Menu, go to "INSERT", click on "MultiTerm Table", choose the number of columns you want, and click on Accept. A table of your whole glossary will appear on the Word screen.

If you're working in Word... Feb 8, 2008

... you can use the "Batch print" option of the MultiTerm menu, or the corresponding button on Word's MultiTerm toolbar.

You don't need to open MultiTerm. All you do is select the termbase you want to print (with Ctrl+Shift+O, or the MultiTerm menu item, or the leftmost icon on Word's MultiTerm toolbar).

The info is on page 14-13 ff of the SDL MultiTerm 2007 User Guide.

Cheers,

Giles

The Termbase does not open in MS Word Jan 20

Dear colleagues,

I was wondering whether anyone could help me with the issue I encountered. I followed all the instructions to manually add the Multiterm complement to Word and I succeeded, yet when I open the termbase I previously created from the MS Word menu, I get an empty blank page. When I use the Up and Down buttons to move around the glossary on the bottom ribbon of the word window it seems to show the entries but still - a blank document.... I need to present a paper at the uni and need to export the termbase to Word. Please help!
Anita
