Hi,

I have the MetaTexis version from ProZ, and I want to import my Trados 5.5 freelance TMs into it. One is quite large (50,000+ TUs). I can\'t get it to import. I have exported it from Trados both in .tmx and .txt format, but I seem to get one \"super-field\" only when I try to import it into MetaTexis, and it only seems to show one TU. The file size is also quite small to reflect all those TUs. Can somebody give me a hint as to what I\'m doing wrong? Maybe it\'s a Trados export issue...? I thought MetaTexis would import Trados TMs directly without exporting them from Trados first, but they don\'t show up on the list when that folder is chosen.

Hi Terry,



I\'m sorry that MetaTexis has problems importing TRADOS databases. Maybe, there is a bug.



Would you mind to send me a sample TRADOS database (both native and exported one)? I will then be able to reproduce any bugs.



This is the support addess: support@metatexis.com



Best regards

Hermann Bruns (developer of MetaTexis)

Thanks, I sure will! Apr 21, 2003

Thanks for your reply. I\'m sure it\'s something I\'m doing wrong, or something simple. But I\'ll send you a sample



The weird thing is that I *did* manage to import a smaller TM successfully. I wonder if it\'s because the larger TM has been created over so many versions of Trados, or because it\'s ZH>EN and there might be coding problems....? Anyway, I\'ll send you a sample (which will probably work just fine, just like when you take your car to the shop and it stops making that weird noise!)



I like the tool very much and want to make a final recommendation to the company I\'m consulting for that they use it exclusively, but we have to lick this import/export thing first. I\'m sure we will with your help.



Thanks again!

Terry
