I know it is possible to merge TM's, but what about glossaries...? I can't seem to find anything...

(version 4.20)

It's easy Dec 1, 2004

Open the glossary file with Word.
Put your cursor at the end of the glossary.
Use Insert/File… to insert another glossary file.
Reorganise the glossary in Wordfast.

Succes,
Gerard

Thank you... and another one! Dec 1, 2004

Great! It's so easy when you know how!

If I may be so bold as to prevail upon your expert knowledge - how does one import an Excel file as a wordfast glossary?

I like it too much.

In Excel make sure that:
Column A = source term
Column B = target term
Column C = comment or empty
Column D = field 1 or empty
Column E = field 2 or empty
Column F = field 3 or empty
All other columns are empty

Export the file as a tab-delimited text file.
Select and reorganise the file in Wordfast.

Regards,
Gerard

Thanks again! Dec 1, 2004

You are a mine of information.

In fact I found that by opening an Excel file in the Wordfast glossaries tab, it asks you to convert it to a WF glossary... obviously only works provided the conditions you mentioned are met.

Thanks again!

Can you delete terms that come up twice? Sep 18, 2008

Hi there - when you merge glossaries, is it possible to delete all the terms that come up two times?

Thank you in advance,

Calum

Indeed it is possible Sep 18, 2008

Open the glossary editor (second last icon on the toolbar).
Press the Tools button to display the filters.
In the Special Filters, select "Mark redundant entries (same source + target).
(The glossary will be sorted and the redundant entries marked with an *.)
Press F1 to display the options.
Press CTRL D to display only the marked terms.
Press CTRL X to delete marked lines.

CTRL X does not permanently delete the lines. If you want to delete them permanently, press CTRL +delete (carefully!)

Best of luck,
Amanda
