Hi all! I'm a newbie, and I'm still trying to figure out how everything works.
I have a lot of things I want to do that seem like they might be pipe dreams, but I figured I'd ask here. The biggest issue I'm having: I have an absolute mountain of data that I would love to leverage with alignments, TMs, and the termbase. But obviously none of the material was created with RWS tech in mind, so for example...
I have a Word document with 20,000 terms and definitions that would be swell to import into Multiterm somehow, but I don't know any way to get it into Excel format that would separate the terms and definitions from each other. Any ideas? I know I could theoretically create an empty termbase and manually add each term as I work, but... there's just too much!

Can you provide a small snippet of this file so we can see what it looks like. It's impossible to offer any advice without seeing how the information has been structured in your file. Preferably you will copy your file, delete everything apart from a single page of representative content and then share this shortened file. Then you're more likely to get a sensible bit of advice on how to tackle this .
Sure! I had a little trouble figuring out how to share the actual file, but each entry is laid out like this. It's about 40 pages of plain text that someone saved as a .docx.

Also note that you only showed one language. If you want this in MultiTerm presumably you have more than one language in the file?
I made a snippet, but I couldn’t figure out how to attach it here. Sorry for the hassle… I’ll try again when I get into the office tomorrow morning.
The EN file is identical to the one I posted, but I’ll try to make a snippet of that one too. Looking at the menu on my phone here, it might be easier on mobile.
Thanks for being patient with the noob!
Just to clarify, I have two separate files: one EN and one JA.

...is this right? ^^;
