SDL Trados 2006 ( build 756).

I would like to export the list of abbreviations I created, but I cannot find a command for that. The list of abbreviations is not exported with the TM when exported to txt (Trados 3-6). Will it be exported with TMX-format?

MTIA for any hint.

AFAIK you can't export them Jun 13, 2006

... but you can create an empty TM (by deleting all TUs) and it will still keep the user list - a very awkward workaround.

The alternative - far fetched for now - is a text file of abbreviations and a script to feed whichever TM you want to fill it with... But that means you need to copy everyone of them from the current environment (Abby Reader;)?)
