is it possible to delete all entries for a selected language in Multiterm?

Au customer has given me huge databases containing all sorts of languages I have no use of. It would make the database lighter if I could remove all the languages I don't need.

Thanks in advance,

Several years ago a customer supplied me with a multilingual Multiterm database. I ascertained that the files were based on MS Access, and asked a friend who used Access to delete the languages. I don't recall the exact procedure, but it was apparently easy – it took just a few keystrokes to select the columns containing the extraneous languages. I then reimported the remaining file into a new Multiterm db.
