Hi,

I have Trados the latest version and I need to convert a TM from tmw to tmx and I can't seem to be able to do it by exporting it in the workbench. I just don't have access to export. Can someone help me out. Is there something I'm not doing? I need to do it ASAP and I need help!

Suggestion May 15, 2007

Hi Marie,
I´ve got Trados 6.5, so I know nothing about later verssions but ¿did you open the TM before trying to export it? Because, in my verssion, the export option is grayed until I open a TM. Just an idea.
Hope this helps
Marina

Sorry, then May 15, 2007

I know my question was obvious, but sometimes, we can´t see the obvious.

Good luck
Marina

Thanks anyway for your answer. I've only been using Trados a couple of weeks and sometimes it drives me crazy!

Exclusive access May 15, 2007

You need to have exclusive access in order to have the export/import option activated

You may not have full administrative rights May 15, 2007

Marie-Stephanie,

At least in version 6.5, you can export a TM only if you have full administrative rights for it. If this TM happens to be from an agency, you probably don't.

You will find this explained in the documentation for the Workbench.

Exclusive Mode May 15, 2007

Hi Marie-Stephanie,

Open the Trados TM with File - Open, but check the box "Exclusive" in the dialog "Open Translation Memory".

Regards,
Ramon

Thank you all for your help! May 16, 2007

I finally was able to find the small box Exclusive. God I feel so ashamed of not having seen it before!!! I was able to export it after and to transfer it in .tmx

Thank you very much for your help once again!
