I have exported the MemoQ files in mqxliff format and added the mqxliff file extension in Editor xliff file, separated by colon from sdlxiff - Trados still says it doe snot recognize the file type.

Is there some other setting in Trados I am not aware of?
I asked my colleague to try to open with his Trados Sutdio 2015 and he has no problems opening the file I created.


Kindly advice what I am not seeing,
Thanks a lot.

Trados Studio 2015 and mqxliff files Oct 9, 2016

My Studio 2015 opens mqxliff files OK (with Ctrl+Shift+O command) without any additional settings.
Mqxliff was exported from MemoQ without skeleton and preview and history, I didn't change extension.
Hope it helps

That´s exactly how I did Oct 9, 2016

That´s exactly how I did. My colleague can open the very same file exported, I am not able to .

I am able to open in 2011 by changing the file extension but I would like to figure out how to open them in Studio 2015 as well.

Studio 2015 does not recognize the file type at all.

Thanks but this did not helpicon_frown.gifnkcxfuw1fbhjixnwks2m.pngirwijgasuhgjhfkn8fjc.jpg

File Types Oct 9, 2016

Click on File Types (one level higher than that on your screenshot).
You will see a list of file types on the RIGHT side.
Check the ‘XLIFF: Kilgray MemoQ’ box.
This will allow you to open both mqxliff and mqxlz.

On the left side, there must be 'XLIFF: Kilgray MemoQ' just below the 'XLIFF' line.
In your case, there is WsXliff, which means that the 'XLIFF: Kilgray MemoQ' is just not checked.

where can I check that option Oct 9, 2016

Dear Stephan
thank you so much for responding to me so quick.

I must not see something - how do I add that check box of mqxliff so I can add it as I not not see it here?

Appreciated

It is weird, all forums say Studio 2015 should have that but for some reason I do not have that option here, what am I missing?

Try to click Oct 9, 2016

Reset to Defaults
Maybe you deleted it unwittingly?..

Wait a moment... Are you sure your version is 2015? The screenshot does not look like that.

yes Oct 9, 2016

That´s what the help menu says, that´s what the SDL account says - when I activated 2015, 2014 got deactivated for some reason.

However your icons look like 2014 Oct 9, 2016

Compare the Editor's pencil icons:


Probably you activated your license for 2015 but still use older software?
Missing memoQ file type is typical for 2014 (as far as I remember, you need a plugin for it).

Thought about that too and downloaded the plugin Oct 9, 2016

Still no luckicon_frown.gif
I have contacted MemoQ, will call them tomorrow as I need to call anyway. I participated in group buy as so far I have only used the clients´s license - and did not get the confirmation mail and instructions to pay - and now the offer has expired. I do not seem to have good luck with MemoQ! Just too bad that more and more agencies are using it.
