Dear colleagues,

I have a new client (an agency) who wants me to do all work for him in Trados. The reason for this is that he wants to build up a big TM and he wants the translators who work for him to be able to swap their terminology.

However, I would prefer to continue to work with DVX because I have got extremely used to it.

Can anybody tell me if it is possible to do a project in DVX and then somehow convert it into Trados at the end? If so, how exactly does this work?

Many thanks in advance for your help!

Olaf

There is a document relating to this from Atril (although slightly out of date) and it has got all the answers you need!

If the client only wants the TM... Mar 17, 2004

You can create a second (blank) TM for the client and list it as the second MDB in the project properties. When the translation is finished/corrected, export this TM as a Trados WB file (one of the export options). The client can then import it into his master Trados TM (make sure you're both using the *exact* same language codes and links (for example DE-DE *or* DE_DE). The client can then send you his TM, and you need only import it into the DVX TM of your choosing.
