Hi!, I have bought a new PC and installed Trados. I´ve just aligned two files with WinAlign but I can´t import the translation memory because the word "Import" appears in grey (i.e. I´m not authorized to import it), Set up, Export and Reorganize also appear in grey colour. Does anyone know what can I do to import my newly created TM?, how can I make those functions available?

Thanks in advance!

Create the memory Jul 15, 2008

Before you are able to import anything, you should create a new translation memory or, open an old one.

Kind regards

Open it exclusively Jul 15, 2008

Hi Jimena,

You didn't specify your TRADOS version, but you might try the following:
In the Workbench, go to 'File' - 'Open', then find a check box 'Exclusive'. Check it and try to open your TM again. Now, the 'Import' should be active.

Now it works! Jul 15, 2008

Thanks Clarisa and Evija for your reply!

I´ve tried Clarisa´s suggestion first and it worked. I had to create a new TM.

Thanks again!

Best regards

Jimena
