Find duplicates and repeated entries



When you need to quickly find out duplicates and repetitions


To start, click the [x2] button and then select source or target language.

You will know, in just a few seconds (by looking at the progress counter at the top of the form), how many duplicates you have in a selected language and then another few more moments later you will get a listing indicating Concept ID and corresponding term. Then, you can select any of them and then click the MultiTerm green logo to open SDL/RWS MultiTerm Desktop and investigate why a term or phrase appears twice or more, and eventually delete or edit those entries.

Attention to this: in very rare occasions, once the process of fetching duplicates has been completed you may not see the results, that is, the window with the results. In that case, you will have to press F7 to see that window (hidden behind the main window).
