Dear all,

I have done the following:

1) exported a MemoQ file to be used for Trados (Export - Memo Xliff - Plain Xliff for other tools)
2) now I need to import the translated file back to MemoQ, however, I keep getting the following message

Importing reviewed document...
This MIF file was saved as FrameMaker version . Supported versions are: 7.00, 8.00, 9.00, 10.0, 11.0, 12.0.
An error occurred while trying to import the reviewed document. The most likely reasons are
- the selected file does not match the document format used when importing the original file, or
- the document has no skeleton, or
- the selected file is being used by an external program.

Now, has anyone encountered this message and what can be done about it? Please note I am using the same CAT versions for importing as I did for creating the files. Even when I try to import the "freshly" exported file, the import gets rejected.

Thank you very much in advance for your assistance!

Kind regards,
Andreja

Is the file still an XLIFF file? Feb 28

To me it sounds as if you were trying to import the MIF file exported as a target file from Studio, instead of the finished XLIFF file simply copied from Studio's project folder. When you import again into memoQ, the file to import should still be an XLIFF file (with the extension MQXLZ). Is it possible that you are trying to import the MIF file instead?

.sdlxliff Feb 28

The exported file has a .sdlxliff extension, so I don't think that's the issue.

Import Reviewed Document Feb 28

Import Reviewed Document - that is the function I need because I want to merge a file I have worked on offline with the current (server) file project.

Same file type Mar 1

To import back into MemoQ you need to be using the same file type. You stated you are trying to import the SDLXLIFF. But you need to choose Save Target As in Trados to save your translation back to XLIFF. Then it should import back in fine.

I usually choose Import -> Update Bilingual, so you could try that instead too.
