Hi

I need some advice exporting a DVX project of an excel translation into Trados friendly format which is what the client uses (I prefer to use DVX for my work but have told the client I can provide copy of the project in .txt format). Is it possible to export the project into a .txt file which the client can easily import into a Trados TM?
Would someone kindly give me some (fool proof) instructions as to the steps to follow to do this.

Many thanks in advance.
Jason.

TM? Jul 20, 2006

If I understand you correctly, you want to share your TM with your client. In this case, simply export your TM as TMX file. (Unfortunately I don't have DVX on this computer, so I can't give you a step-to-step guide on how to do it. I'd open the TM, choose Export from the File menu and then see where I can find the right option to export as TMX.)

Trados can read and import TMX files, there should be no problem with it at all.

HTH.

Sonja

It starts with the *.dvmdb file Jul 20, 2006

Your project file has the extension .dvprj
your TM file has the extension .dvmdb
Find this file, open it, and follow the menu/assistant path:

File / Export... / File or Database / Next / Trados WB database / Next / Select... /(enter the name.txt and select a directory where you think you will find it after it will have been exported)
