No sé si alguien nos puede indicar cómo convertir glosarios realizados en tablas EXCEL en entradas de una base de términos de MULTITERM, con la versión de Trados 5.5.

Gracias de antemano!!!

Esta instrucción me ha sido de gran ayuda... Jul 21, 2006

...y la uso siempre. Ojalá te ayude a ti también.

Excel Conversion
1. Open the file you want to convert into MultiTerm format in Excel.
2. Highlight the first column, from the Insert menu select Insert Column.
3. Type two asterisks (**) into the first cell.
4. Copy this cell to the whole column by dragging the cell with the two asterisks (**) down the column up to the last word/term.
5. For each field, highlight the column and select Insert Column from the Insert menu. A new column will be inserted directly in front of the highlighted one.
6. Insert the appropriate field name ( for example) into the top cell of each new column. The field name should always be surrounded by angled brackets and written exactly as it appears in your MultiTerm database.
7. For each field name, copy the cell to the whole column as in #4.
8. Save the file as tab delimited text (.txt). There will be a message alerting you that only the active sheet will be saved, click OK, and another message that formatting may change, click Yes.
9. Close the file in Excel. You may be prompted to save the changes again, click No.
10. Finally, format the Text file for MultiTerm Import by deleting all blank spaces: copy the blank space between ** and the first < and replace all with nothing. And, voilá!! (Open your MultiTerm and import the .txt file.)

Un abrazo desde México,
