Toledo,

http://www.sdl.com/products-translation/products/products-support/products-support-documentation/products-support-documentation-2005.htm

Open the TM [ or a new TM] to be updated in SDL Maintain.
2. Select TM, Import, TMX Format Files. The Import Wizard – Files screen is
displayed.
3. Click the Add button. The File Selection dialog box is displayed.
4. Select the .TMX files to be imported:

.... etc.

From manual:

Import segments into a TM
You can import segments into a TM from:
 SDLX TM, ITD and Align files
 TMX files
 ...
1 Open the TM to be updated in SDL Maintain.
2 Select TM, Import, SDLX Files & Translation Memories. The Import Wizard –
Translation Memories (optional) screen is displayed. Do you want to import

Are you sure you downloaded the right version? Jun 10, 2005

Hi Toledo,

On menu "Translation Memory" is nothing, I can see any menu with this title


When you start SDLX, a switchboard will be opened, in which you can choose the Maintain module (as well as all the other components - Analyse, Align, Edit and so on). Just click on Maintain and then complete the steps that Geneviève listed in her posting.

Since you mentioned the Translation Memory menu I assume that you have either opened the Edit module (which is just for translation) or have not downloaded the full SDLX Evaluation version but SDLX Lite. SDLX Lite is a free and very limited version of SDLX that only consists of the Edit module, you cannot create/import TMs in this module/version.

Hope this helps!

Regards,
Claudia

Wenn you start SDLX the first dialog is for search for a file to translate. On the left corner is a button to access to all the modules...I did not saw it and went straight ahead to the translation module ;(

Thks again.

I am testing if the maintenance of TMs is better in SDLX than in Trados. It seems here I either cannot make a spellcheking on the target segments ;(
