I'm trying to import a TM done in Wordfast, following the procedures of creating a new TM and importing from Trados Workbench the txt file. It doesn't work at all. It shows no TU ! while there is more than 3000 TU in the Wordfast txt file.

Is there something special to have in mind while importing the txt file?

Thanks in advance.

Disable Matching Sublanguages (Import option) May 11, 2008

If that's the case...

The translation units for import include source segments in English (United Kingdom) and English (United States). The source language in your current translation memory is English (United Kingdom) only.

If you select Check matching sublanguages, all English (United States) source segments are regarded as invalid and thus not imported.

If you do not select this option, Translator's Workbench disregards the difference in sub-language codes between the English (United States) source segments for import and the existing English (United Kingdom) source segments. Source segments using both varieties of English are imported.

A language issue, maybe?
