You can import data into a new term base or into an existing one.

Important: When you import files into an existing term base, all contents are recreated: the old term base contents (data, languages, structure) are all discarded and created again from the imported file's data. The GUID remains so that the term base can still be accessed by existing projects. Starred entries are not preserved. Cross-references between entries of a term base are deleted on recreation.

Importing into an existing term base is useful when you regularly need to manually fill a qTerm term base with content of a term baseTBX or MultiTerm.

Note: When you import Excel or CSV files, their content is added to the earlier content of the term base. TBX and MultiTerm files, however, overwrite the earlier content - just like you were importing into a new term base.
