Hi Everyone,

I just upgraded to Trados 7 (7.0.0 - build 615) from 6.5.5.

I have a bit of a problem... I tried to import a translation memory (a 179 KB text file created in WinAlign - and other TMs I tried). But Workbench is throwing the following error "50028): The import file C:Documents and Settings\Christian" (that's the entire message...).

Does anyone have any ideas what might be going on?

Best,
Christian

How to solve 50028 Error when you import TMs in Trados Nov 7, 2005

Hi Christian,

I upgraded to Trados 7 (7.0.0 - build 615) from 6.5.5. and I met the same error message too.

But, I solved this proble. Please see the following:

Step 1: Export the existing TM.

Step 2: Copy the header part from exported .txt file.
The header part composed of the 1st line to
( just previous line before the first )

Step 3: Paste it in front of the first in TM for importing.

Step 4: And, import it to your existing TM.

That¡¯s all. This error message may occurred when this header was not included in your TM for importing.


Best regards,

Edward A. Kim

This is what I did... Nov 28, 2005

Hi Edward,

OK, this is what I did...

I pasted in




into the very top of the text file from WinAlign, so it looked liked this:

That seemed to do the trick.

Thanks!!

Error 50028 Nov 10, 2010

Hi,
I followed what was recommended in the previous post.

I can import the TM, but the segments found the TM imported result invalid...

The TM to be imported comes from Wordfast and the client, who supplied it to me, told me that it was saved as a TM for Trados. But the header was Wordfast...

%20101008~153612 %OD (Xx) %TU=00003218 %EN-EN %Wordfast TM v.5.91i %IT-IT %---88647555

Any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance
