Hello All

I'd like to use the 'export file list to Trados' function on SDL Trados 2006, but keep getting an error. Here's what I do:

I open 'maintain' on the switchboard, the go to File/Export/File List to Trados. I select my languages and the location, and then select my .itd file. But when I click 'ok', I get an error message saying '1 file(s) not added due to file type mismatches'. This happens with all my .itd files. I've recently reinstalled and it didn't work before my reinstallation either. Anyone got any ideas? I can use the other TM export functions but I'd like this one as I think it would keep the formatting.

All the best

Fiona

Original file format? May 21, 2008

Hello Fiona,

I have never used this function myself but according to the SDL Knowledge Base it is limited to "ITDs originally produced from RTF, HTML, XML, SGML and MIF files".

Could it be that the files you're trying to export have a different original format?

Best regards,
Claudia
