Hi everybody

I have received different TM4S from an agency and I have to make use of them in my translation. Unfortunately, there are 2 different TMs, one tmw and one tmx. As I work with Wordfast, I can open the tmx without any problems, but it only contains 9 sentences... and is thus of no use whatsoever. The tmw on the other hand is much bigger (7559ko vs 980527ko) but I cannot open it as it is.

I have several colleagues who work with Trados but do not know either how to transform a tmw into tmx.

Can anyone explain to me whether it is possible and how to proceed ?

Many thanks for yr help
Elisabeth

I can't help you transforming your tmw to tmx.

However, I recently received a Trados TM as txt file, and Wordfast can handle those.

If your colleagues know how to transform the tmw to Trados txt, you can import it with WF.

HTH.

tmw Sep 30, 2005

Tmw is the Trados format for TM databases. To convert a tmw into tmx or text format you need to export it from Trados into these formats, i.e. you need Trados. Maybe one of your colleagues working with Trados can do it for you. (Open the TM in Trados Workbench, select Export in the File menu, give it a name and select a folder, select .tmx or .txt, and clic OK.) If you can't find anybody to do this, please contact me through my profile.

Good luck,
Cristóbal
