Hi everyone!

I have a problem that is starting to drive me up the wall - I have been trying to import an exported Trados TM file (.txt file) into SDLX and it just won't work.

Having followed all the usual steps - open SDLX Maintain, create a new SDLX TM file, run the import wizard - I don't know what else to do.

The message I get at the end of the unsuccessful process is "No translations were found matching the given search parameters" - this is odd because I doublechecked the Trados file and I definitely selected the correct source and target language (EN-GB to DE-DE).

Is it just me or have any of you ever encountered the same problem and know what to do?

Many thanks in advance for your replies.

Anita

Hallo Anita,

ich schreibe lieber Deutsch:)

1) Es könnte eine Frage der Kodierung sein. Versuche mal die Datei unter einem anderen Namen zu speichern, aber mit einer anderen Kodierung.

2) Bist Du sicher, dass Du bei EN und DE die richtigen Länder hast (USA/GB -Germany)?

3) Wenn das alles nichts bringt, bitte Deinen Kunden um die Datei im TMX-Format.

Geneviève:)

Hallo Geneviève,

vielen Dank für Deine schnelle Antwort - aber das hilft leider alles nichts. Muss wohl den Kunden um ein anderes Format bitten.

Viele Grüße
Anita
