Probably a newbie question, but can someone please explain how I import a TM supplied as a .txt file into something Trados (2007) can use?

Hi Hilde,

I'm not too sure about 2007, hopefully someone with that version can confirm, but in 7.5 you just click on
File -> Import
and then I would just accept the default settings and press OK. This will create your TM for you and you just need to name and save.

Hope that helps, but like i say its for version 7.5.

All the best
Owen

Sorry Jun 15, 2007

Just realized that wasn't a particularly complete answer.

1) Create a new TM.
File > New select your language preferences, click Create.

2) Name and Save your TM.
Once it is saved you will have a nice new, empty TM.

Now you can import.

3) File > Import (probably best to leave the settings at their default). > OK

4) Navigate to the .txt file provided by the client and Open.

Then your TM is ready to use.

Again this is all for 7.5, hopefully someone with 2007 can make the corrections to this if any are necessary?

All the best
Owen
