I ran the latest Multiterm update yesterday but when my machine restarted Multiterm had disappeared; there is no longer an icon on the home screen. I can still access my term base for my current translation in Trados Studio (2019) but am worried about losing it (I'm not very "techie" and am Trados self-taught). If I reinstall Multiterm on my machine, will I lose my current term base? Any simple (!) advice would be much appreciated.
Hello Sarah Letza
The app is designed to back up your Termbase/Translation Memories.
These resources are never stored in MultiTerm (or Studio) but in your projects folder (folder A*)
When you back up your resources, the app does not remove them from the original folder- but backs them up to a second designated folder of your choice.
This simply means that should the TM/TB become corrupted in 'folder A' (your default folder) you have another 'copy' in 'folder B' that you can fall back on.
