Hi Everyone,

I am fairly new to Wordfast Pro, and just figuring my way through the demo-mode set-up. I am trying to merge the content of my own two local TDBs into one. I have a read-only TDB which prevents sensitive terms being translated into censored documents, and a censored TDB which I am adding new terms to. The terms will also be useful in the read-only TDB however, and other than add each term twice, once for the censored version, and again to the read-only version, I'm not sure how to merge the two.

I am thinking that I will have to set the second TDB to read rather than read-only.

Is there a simple way to merge the content of one or more TDBs to another from within Wordfast Pro?


Thanks in advance

Success Nov 4, 2011

Having delved into some other threads in this forum, I figured a way to combine the data in Wordfast Pro TDBs. having exported both TDBs as .txt files, I was able to open both files in Word, then copy the content of one of the .txt files into the content of the other, save this, and then re-import it into Wordfast Pro. I saw the number of terms had risen.

The thread also discussed using Oliphant as a means of combining data, so just trying to figure out how that works.

Olifant (with an "f", not "ph"!) is for TM's only. You can find it at http://okapi.sourceforge.net/downloads.html
It's currently only available for Windows, but a new Java version is in the making and it will be cross-platform (= also Mac & Linux).
