I have Trados 6.52417 and am still struggling with it other than the most subsitence level.

A client has sent me a trados txt file "from which the trados memory is to be extracted". So I:

. created a new translation memory
. attempted to import the text file into it

however, it told me that all TUs read were invalid.

What am I doing wrong please?

unwell finalizing on export process Apr 1, 2006

Dear Mary Rose,

There are some possibilities for the case, according to my experience it was happened when the .txt TU was corrupt means that there was an unwell finalizing on the export process. I suggest you to ask for it again. Good luck!

Best Regards,
Siti Nur Aryani

Check the languages Apr 1, 2006

Hi Mary Rose,

I have Trados 6.52417 and am still struggling with it other than the most subsitence level.

Slightly OT, but build 417 is outdated (even under 6.5), as it was replaced by 6.5.5.438/439 (and subsequently build 441).


however, it told me that all TUs read were invalid.

What am I doing wrong please?

Could be an inconsistency between the languages of the import file and your TM - perhaps US vs. British English. Check the text file for the language codes "EN-GB" or "EN-US".

HTH, Ralf
