Hello!

I am new in Tag Editor/Trados (I have Trados 7)
I am trying to begin the translation. I have saved the TM that the client sent me in my documents. When I try to open the TM in Tag Editor it doesn´t find it. (It´s as if there is nothing where I saved it).
The TM was a zip doc, and I unziped it. It is now like a text document, maybe this is the problem?

Thank you

Thats right Apr 15, 2008

You can't open this file. You have to go to your translators workbench. Then do the following:

1. Create a new translation memory (call it whatever)
2. File / Import / Choose the text file you were sent.

Thats it!

Let me know if it works

Create a new TM and Import the .txt file Apr 15, 2008

Hi Marion!

You have to open the Translator's Workbench.
Create a new TM:
File --> New --> Select language pairs and save

Then you have to import the TM that you got from the client
File --> Import --> OK --> Browse your .txt file (The TM) --> Open

The import process will start and you'll have all the segments of the TM. Then you can start working with TagEditor and Translator's Workbench.

Hope this helps,

David

options by default Apr 15, 2008

Hello again!

When I imported the TM, there was options to choose.
I let them by default. Is that ok?
Thank you

No problem, Marion, make it easy on yourself. There will be - by the looks of it - a lot more coming in terms of questions on how to use SDL TRADOS. But heck, "that's what friends are for".


Right?
