Hi everybody,

I have Office 2010 and have just downloaded the new, trial version Metatexis.

The client provided me with a rar TM which contained 5 files with the following extensions: IIX, MDF, MTF, MWF, TMW. I don't know what those extensions are, but I assume they are all Trados related somehow. I'm following the video tutorial on metatexis.com, but the problem is that Metatexis doesn't recognize any of these extensions, and I can't seem to find a way to attach the client's TM.

I would really appreciate a step-by-step instruction how to take those 5 files and turn them into a Metatexis TM. TIA.

1) You need to convert the Trados TM to the exchange format, i.e. TMX. Open your TM in Trados Workbench and export it to .TMX.

2) Create a new empty Metatexis TM and import the TMX file into it.

HTH,
Natalia

Hi Natalie,

My mistake for not articulating my problem correctly. I don't have Trados, so is there another way to convert it to TMX format?
