While working with XLF files from an agency, I have been sent TMX translation memories. When trying to import the TMX into Wordfast 3, I receive the error:

***warning*** TU 1 contains carriage return
***warning*** TU 1 contains carriage return
***warning*** TU 2 contains carriage return
***warning*** TU 2 contains carriage return
***warning*** TU 3 contains carriage return
***warning*** TU 3 contains carriage return
***warning*** TU 4 contains carriage return
***warning*** TU 4 contains carriage return
***warning*** TU 5 contains carriage return
***warning*** TU 5 contains carriage return
***warning*** TU 6 contains carriage return

...and so on.

I previously found a work-around, which is to import the TMX into Wordfast Anywhere (www.freetm.com) then export as a Wordfast TM, and this has worked fine. It's just a strange process to have to follow each time that I'm sent a job!

I'm wondering whether newer versions of WF will address this or whether there are more straight-forward work-arounds? It seems odd that one version of WF works and newer versions don't.

It's just a warning May 22

Hello,

For a test, I created a TM that has one translation unit with a carriage return in it (i.e., two lines in one unit), and imported it into WFP3. Yes, the same message appeared. But as I proceeded, the TM unit was imported successfully. So, this is just a warning, not an error message.

You should be able to see those TUs in the TM administration perspective after importing.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Max
