Hello everyone, I got a big problem when doing translation.

I'm using SDLX 2007 Professional, and translated some MIF files created by FrameMaker 8 from English to Japanese. When I finish the translation, I used SDLX project wizard to create translation from ITD files. But when the project wizard is processing the ITD files, it was never finished.

I tried for several times, but got the same result.

Thank you very much.

What do you mean by "it was never finished"?
Did your computer freeze?
Did you get any error message? If so, what did it say?
How large (data size) are the ITD and the MIF files?
How many of the ITD files are there?

This information is essential for me to try to trace your problem.

Thank you for your reply.

I mean when the project wizard is processing the ITD files, my computer freeze, and no error message.

There are 33 ITD files, and the total size of ITD files is 5.96MB. The size of source MIF files (English) is 70MB, and there are 30 files.


Thank you for your time.

Give it some time Oct 17, 2008

Hi all,
how long did you wait for the conversion to finish? The process may take an hour or even longer depending on your PC speed.
Did you try cleaning/converting the files one by one?

Thank you for your reply.

I left the project wizard there for over two hours, but it was still in the same screen, and still freezed. So I think it's not about time.

This occurs when the project wizard is trying to merge the index, cross reference and variable into the other MIF files.

My SDLX and FrameMaker is both lastest version.
