I'm trying to import a txt file into an existing (empty) TM created in Trados.
The problem is that although the program reads all the translation units (according to the message in the bottom bar), it does not load any unit in the TM.
At the end, all I get is an empty TM.
Do you have any idea/suggestion to solve this problem?
Thank you in advance.

Check the language codes Sep 19, 2003

Hi Delelis,
There's a good chance that the language codes of the import file don't match those of the TM you're importing into. For example, if the TM source language is English (UK), the language code for the units in the export file must read "EN-GB"; if they have "EN-US", the import will not work.

Hi Ralf,
Unfortunately this is not the problem, this was the first thing I checked when I realized I had not imported the TM.
Thank you.
