Hi there,

Just a quick question - when trying to import a TM in TRADOS I have received from a translator, the following error message appears:

50028: file invalid - no header found

I asked the translator concerned and he doesn't have a clue - does anyone have any suggestions?

Versions? Nov 3, 2005

What version of Trados do you and the translator use respectively?

And did you receive the .txt-file or the 5 files?

This info might make it easier to answer your question.

Could you post the first 5 lines of your TM? Nov 3, 2005

Hi Paul,

if your TM file has the file extension *.txt or *.tmx could you please post the first five lines of that file here?

I suspect that the header of your file is missing important information. This would clarify a lot.

Thanks in advance,
