Hello!

I am working in the field of localisation engineering and one of our clients sent us a huge termbase we are required to use for a dozen of languages.
Unfortunately, the file size of this monster is approx. 1,2 GB and this causes a number of complications. Some linguists complain their computers freeze, Studio loads with a delay, etc. So familiar...

Is it possible to split the termbase to separate languages and keep it's structure?

Hello!

Is it possible to split the termbase to separate languages and keep it's structure?

Is there an easy way of doing this?



Thank you!

Create individual termbases containing only one (or more) languages. Jul 23, 2019

You can

1. Open Termbase Management and right-click on Definition to save the Termbase Definition (= structure).
2. Create New Termbase(s), using that definition and modifying it in the Assistant, i.e. remove the languages you don't want to appear

Any further question?

Kind regards,
Ruth

I used the .xdt definition file saved from the original termbase, of course.
No success so far; I tried importing tbx as well.

Allow over-complete entries, plus reorganization? Jul 29, 2019

Hi Dimmo, I only just read your reply...
That's a strange behaviour to me.

I would try with:
"Allow over-complete entries: true
[Full reorganization: true]"

Otherwise: "I suggest you post your question on the official Trados forums, where Trados employees lurk:

Good luck, if you haven't been successful yet.
