The MultiTerm format

MultiTerm terminology can be imported either in the TXT or in the XML format (MultiTerm iX).

XDT file

The export file of the terminology exported from MultiTerm does not contain any information that distinguishes picklist entries from term list entries. This information is only contained in termbase definition files (XDT files), which also contain other structural information of the particular MultiTerm termbase.

To ensure a smooth import of MultiTerm terminology to Across, the corresponding termbase definition file can be selected during the import. Before you importing the terminology to Across, we urgently recommend exporting the termbase definition file in addition to the actual terminology and selecting this file during the import to Across.
