Hello,
I received from a translation company a Trados Autosuggest (.bpm file). Can I upload it in CafeTran and use it?

Thank you all in advance for your prompt reply!

What's the file format? May 18, 2016

I'm not sure about the file format (database, plain text?). You could send it to CafeTran.support@gmail.com and ask Igor to have a look at it.

But anyway, CafeTran doesn't need auxiliary files like these, sinds it calculates the autocomplete suggestions on the fly, from a lot more resources than only the TM, termbase etc.

So the AutoSuggest function is not a TM?

No, it's a typing aid.

Just downloaded an example. It's:

SQLite format 3

When I open it with SQLite Browser I can export data to CSV:

k,f,d
0,3648,Europäischen
1,176,Europäischen Wirtschaftsgemeinschaft
2,3,Europäischen Wirtschaftsgemeinschaft und der Republik
3,185,Wirtschaftsgemeinschaft
4,3,Wirtschaftsgemeinschaft und der Republik
5,646,Republik
6,10,Republik Côte
7,10,Republik Côte d'Ivoire
8,59,Côte
9,57,Côte d'Ivoire
10,57,d'Ivoire
11,197,Fischerei
12,32,Küste
13,2949,DIE
14,8,DIE EUROPÄISCHE
15,2,DIE EUROPÄISCHE WIRTSCHAFTSGEMEINSCHAFT
16,28,EUROPÄISCHE
17,3,EUROPÄISCHE WIRTSCHAFTSGEMEINSCHAFT


Are these entries related to the source language (English)? E.g.: Can you type the English term and have the German equivalent inserted?

The language pair is DE>IT, it is a patent.

I sent a request to Igor, hopefully I will get a feedaback in the next few hours.

I suppose that .dbm stands for "DataBase Management", but honestly have no clue.

Hi Serena,

I have never heard of such a format before. As Hans has already pointed out, it looks like a typing aid file rather than a translation memory. CafeTran has its own auto-suggesting function which you can use while translating your project.
