Hello!

I am unable to import a memory which is in .txt format. I am using SDL Trados 7.0 version. Please guide me how to import the .txt memory... And how to convert the txt format to tmx format?



Thanks in advance.

Hello Manohar,

Which version of SDL Trados does the import originate from? Also, are the languages for the Translation Memory exactly the same as the txt export?

Please try the following:

1. Open Translators Workbench
2. Open the Translation Memory
3. Go to File > Import
4. Under the Import options menu please untick the option to "Check matching sub-languages"
5. Press OK and begin the import process.

I hope this helps.

Many Thanks,

Gareth Powell

usual reason for this kind of error ... Oct 13, 2008

I tried the same procedure but I got an error message "Import finished successfully. 1200 invalid"


ALL the segments in the txt file are wrong, correct? At least in my case the reason was not matching language or languages. Note that EN is not EN-US for instance. Note also that source and target in txt file must correspond to the language pair of the TM (on the second thought I think it must be so).


regards

PS: good point by SDL support - they got faster lately (g).
