For starters, what is the encoding of your file?

Use the Save As command in Excel and save the document in Unicode coding.

Hi all
Thanks for the respond, I did try to open and also to import my doc in SDL 2011 after saving it as Unicode (UTF-8), but it fails to open and also there is no option about to import it?

Thanks in advance for the help

Windows & MS Office work (internally) with UTF-16. So, if you export as "Unicode", you'll get UTF-16. If you export as "UTF-8" you'll get UTF-8.

If this doesn't work, export as UTF-8, open the file using Notepad and save it as UTF-16.

Rolf
Thanks so much for your insights,
I copied Colum A & B and saved them separately in MS Word as .Doc then exported them through Winalign to MY TM in SDL trados 2011

At the very beginning I exported the file as "Unicode", but failed to open....they must be something wrong the Arabic, English has no problems

Thanks again for your cooperation

Translation Memories Arabic/English/Arabic May 17, 2013

Hi there
Any idea about how I can buy or get a Translation Memory for both directions Arabic to English and English to Arabic?? plus Auto-suggest dictionary or Term bases

I mean I tried to build my own TMs but the thing really consume months or may years to make a good one like google translate
