I need to know what is the compatibility of terminology files between Multiterm 2011 and Wordfast Pro. Is it possible to import a Multiterm terminology into Worfast and in which how, how can the conversion be done? Thank you.

Dear Anahit,

Export your Multiterm terminology as CSV or TBX.

Kind regards,
Yasmin

If you have MultiTerm 2011 installed you can use GlossaryConverter to export the terminology to an Excel file, as explained here:

http://wordfast.fi/blog/cat-tools/2012/10/17/convert-sdltb-to-excel-with-glossaryconverter-plugin/

In Excel, save the source and target columns as Unicode text, and import the resulting file in Wordfast Pro.

If you don't have MultiTerm 2011, you may want to try WfConverter, as explained here:

http://wordfast.fi/blog/cat-tools/2012/11/03/convert-sdltm-and-sdltb-without-studio-and-multiterm/

The relevant part of the video starts at 04:30, here is a direct link:

Please note this is the first release of the converter and it may not pick up everything if the termbase is complex. The author plans to release an improved version in the near future.

Through WF Converter Nov 6, 2012

I successfully did that through WF Converter by converting into two column Excel document.
It's just a matter of knowing the existence of this supporting programs.
