Hi,

How does one save a .txt memory as a .TMX file, please? (It's not very clear to me from the WordFast manual).

Thanks!

Elena

Good question! Jan 7, 2005

This is the second major thing I can't figure out about Wf 5.0, the first being how to select files in a folder. I've been using Wf for years and I've done these operations countless times.

My guess is that this new version is not quite ready. Better to stick with 4.22t22 for now.

You can also ask your questions to the Wf group:

Best,
Esther

Thanks for your suggestion, Esther: problem solved! Jan 7, 2005

I checked the Wordfast Yahoo group, and there was a recent message about .TMX by Yves C. himself that read:
Reminder: the TMX export is in the TM editor/Tools/Special filters.

And indeed, there it was!

So I've been able to save my translation memory as .TMX, which my client requested.

(Now you know...) Thanks again, Esther!

Elena

Thanks, Elena! Jan 8, 2005

I had seen a mention of the new button on the Wf mailing list but hadn't paid close attention because I was using SDLX for a big job.

Aside from exporting in TMX, the new TM Editor set of tools is quite impressive, enough to bring me back to Wf more often.

Best,
Esther
