The best way to process the tbx file and export as tmx or SDL Multiterm is via Apsic Xbench (use latest version, free for 30 days) as illustrated in the screenshots.

EU's terminology monster IATE can be filtered and downloaded and then imported into a translation environment tool to be used interactively. For many of us this is a tremendously helpful resource. What might have flown under the radar are the two ways to export IATE -- CSV and TBX (TermBase Exchange) -- of which TBX should be the logical option because the import process can be executed with much less manual mapping. However, to bolster the latest version of the exchange standard TBX 3, only that TBX version is supported by IATE. Unfortunately (and kind of unbelievably), not a single translation environment tool supports that standard. To help remedy this, I have written to the powers-that-be at SDL and memoQ to encourage them to add support for TBX 3 -- hoping that if they do, all the other tools will fall in line. I'll let you know how this goes.
