Dear Friends,

I have obtained a memory along with some files to be translated, from the client. All of them are in the zipped form. I however wish to analyze these source files that I am to work on, before I actually commence the translation work. I have tried unzipping the files and then analyzing them, but the system tells me that the file type is not recognised and they cannot be analyzed. All the source files are SGM files.

I would be immensely thankful if someone guides me step by step about achieving my goal. Please ask if my statement is not clear.

best regards,

fachexpert

SGML should work Mar 7, 2002

...at least .sgm is included in the list of file types that can be analysed using Trados Workbench 5.0. If you\'re using Trados, and you have properly opened the memory in your Workbench, but you still get the error message, you might want to check whether the SGML files were damaged.



In addition to the Yahoo groups mentioned by Mats, you could also post a forum message on www.translationzone.com.

This is what Trados Online Help suggests... Mar 7, 2002

To perform an analysis of one or more documents, follow the steps below:



1. Prepare Translator\'s Workbench as follows:



· Check the Translation Memory Options dialog box to ensure that the relevant settings for analysis are defined. For instance, to analyse HTML or SGML/XML documents, you must specify the correct DTD settings file in the Tools tab.



DTD Settings Files



Under DTD Settings Files, you can specify which initialisation files Translator\'s Workbench should use when analysing, batch translating or cleaning up HTML or SGML/XML files. DTD settings files are created using the DTD Settings Wizard in TRADOS TagEditor.

Hope this helps, I know how slow the TranslationZone can be.
