It's quite simple... Aug 21, 2005

- From SDLX dashboard, select Maintain
- Select TM --> Open and open the SDLX TM to which you want to add the .txt TM (or create a new one if you prefer).
- Now select TM --> Import --> Trados. This will open the Import Wizard.
- Select Add. This will open the File Selection window. In the File Type box, select "Text Files (.txt)
- Select Add Selection and open the .txt file you want to import, then click OK.

Import via SDLX TM tool Aug 22, 2005

I have been using a different option because I tend to create a new TM for the purpose. I go to Translation Memory, Import a TM, Create a new TM, Import from Trados etc.
If you want to end up with a translation that needs to be exported to Trados, you will need to presegment your text first with Trados. If not, you can just use your imported TM and process the text as usual.
SDLX have a guide on 'How to Import/Export to Trados'. I don't know whether it is available from their website, but if you email me, I will send it to you. This guide dates from 2003 so I don't know how compatible it is with more recent versions of SDLX but I now work with SDLX 2004 and I still find it useful.

What do you see when you start SDLX? Aug 29, 2005

Hi Silvia

sorry for not answering before but I missed your posting.
Which version of SDLX are you running?
And what do you see when you start the program? If you see the "start translation" dialogue (a window in which you can select the file to translate, the source and target language and an optional TM, then you have to click on the "SDLX" button (bottom left) to access the main switchboard. There you'll find the "Maintain" button.

Let me know if this helps

Mirella
