Dear all,

I have just downloaded THE microsoft glossary available at the Microsoft Website and now I am wondering if it is possible to integrate it in Multiterm.

If this helps, I am interested in getting an EN / ES multiterm of Microsoft terminology.

Has someone tried this before or knows how I can do this?

Thank you!

What I have since few years is a EN-DE and EN-SL bilingual glossary - but as a TM, and not as a MultiTerm asset. If I remember correctly, I downloaded them as bilingual csv files, and from there on it was not much of a hassle.

I did try - without thinking - to make a MultiTERM database out of it, but very soon realized I am misusing the tool: we do not have vocabularies to look up whole sentences or even paragraphs.

maybe I misunderstood the question - I went to see, what Microsoft is offering and have not seen anything close to bilingual (in the sense of EN SP)
