Getting started: Tutorial

The folks at Linguistech put together some great video tutorials to help get Transiterm users get started: English tutorial / French tutorial

Importing from another program

To import records from another program, you will need to add them to an Excel file that is formatted in a very specific way. Here's what to do:

  1. Download the template file.
  2. Leave the "Entry number" column blank and do not add any new columns.
  3. Copy your data into the appropriate columns of the template, being careful not to change the column headings.
  4. Make sure the "Source" column is filled out for every record (sources are mandatory in Transiterm).
  5. Save the Excel file.
  6. In Transiterm, click the menu button on the main screen, select "Import from Excel" and follow the prompts.

Making backups

Backing up your terminology database regularly is always a good idea, and with Transiterm, it's easy! Just click the menu button on the main screen, select "Create XML backup" and follow the prompts. Unlike Excel format, XML format will even save the line breaks and formatting (e.g. boldface, colours, italics) and line breaks in your records.

Feel free to email the developer. However, please realize that this MS Access version of Transiterm is an old hobby project of mine. I may take a while to get back to you.
