I am working on a package sent by the client on a Mac (with the virtual machine paralells and windows and esxcel installed there). I tried to convert an excel file to sdl tb format as suggested by the SDL Manual used by the client. But I could only generate the formats: xdt, xml (as html file) and xdt.log. According to the help menu of the glossary converter the xml format can be used to be uploaded in Multiterm as glossary. But when I upload the xdt format in the term base section I get this the above message. Any idea. Had a look at other similar questions, but I did not get any further there.
I'm going to mark this thread as answered for now as we sorted the problem for Ute yesterday... at least we solved the problem of creating the termbase she needed. I did this using the Glossary Converter and just converted the Multiterm XML by accepting all the fields as simple text fields plus the source and target languages. That was adequate for her for this project.
The problem with the error message isn't resolved yet, but Ute may report back once she has managed to resolve this.
Thank you so much for your help, Paul. I could not look after that further, but once I find the time and I could solve it, I will get back and will report. Thank you so much!
tyr not to use 3rd parties stuffs, but to use "Multiterm Convert"
[Edited: thanks Mr. Paul Filkin]
She is using the Glossary Converter. You mean MultiTerm Convert.
right, so this post should moved to the category "SDL AppStore Applications"
