Hi,

I am rather new at CAT tools.

How do I open the MDB file in SDLEdit ?
(Browsing does not show the doc)

Thanks
Ode

MDB - Microsoft DataBase? Oct 18, 2007

MDB could be a Microsoft (Access) DataBase.
This Database format cannot be process with TRADOS. Additional engineering steps are necessary, e.g. it could be possible to copy & paste the table(s) from Access to Excel, translate the excel sheet in TagEditor and copy back to Access after translation.
It is also possible to export tables to xml with Access, translate the xml in TagEditor and import the translated xml back into the MDB.
The second option is more secure and professional but requires more knowledge and engineering efforts.

Kind regards,
Stefan Gentz

That's the TM Oct 19, 2007

Hi Ode,

The mdb file is the Translation Memory.

To open it from within SDL Edit click Translation Memory > Open... and select the mdb file.

Hope this helps.

Best regards,
Claudia

Thank you Claudia. That is what I had done, but it did not work the first time I tried...so I panicked...
It worked the second time I tried.
But thanks for your confirmation.

I tried Ralf. That is why I posted under solving CAT tools problems.
SDLX is not quite like Trados, I found out taking the Trados training which I thought would be an SDL X training. That is why I did not choose the Trados forum.
But thank you for reposting it. I'll remember.

Hi Ode,

There is no longer an isolated Trados forum - the SDL Trados Support forum is designed to cater for SDLX and Trados tools. This reflects the convergence of the SDL and Trados 'worlds', and is also designed to facilitate coverage by SDL Trados support staff.

Best regards,
Ralf

Maybe a rename would be in order? Oct 19, 2007

In that case, wouldn't it make sense to rename the forum to something like "SDLX & Trados Support"?

Going off topic... Oct 19, 2007

Hi Benjamin,
We're going off-topic here, so if you feel more discussion is needed, please post a new topic.

In that case, wouldn't it make sense to rename the forum to something like "SDLX & Trados Support"?

We deliberately chose "SDL Trados", as this is the overall name used for the product suite. I agree that the sub-title of the forum needs changing, though.

Best regards,
Ralf

PS Forum sub-title edited.
