Hello,

An agency sent me two itd. files for translation and one mdb. file containing the TM. They normally send me the itd files with the applied TM, so I really don't know what to do with this mdb file in order to apply the TM to the itd files. I have been using SDLX Lite for a very short time, so I really don't know what to do. I would appreciate any help with this.

Thank you so much.

Hi Sandra Oct 18, 2008

Open the .itd file in SDLX, go to Translation memory > Open, and choose the TM (i.e. your .mdb file). Then go to Translation memory > Apply.

HTH,
Natalia

Nothing happened Oct 19, 2008

Hi Natalie,

Thank you very much for your help. I followed all your instructions but nothing happened. Is there anything else I have to do?

Highlight then press F7 Oct 19, 2008

After opening the Translation memory, you can perform concordance search by highlighting the segment, then press F7. That is the difference between SDLX and Trados Workbench. Workbench can automatically displays the concordance search but SDLX does not.

Apply 100% matches Oct 19, 2008

Hi,

You can also apply the 100% matches like this,

- Select "Translation Memory - Apply" in the menu
- Follow the instructions

If there are 100% matches in the TM they will now be applied.

I don't know how familiar you are with SDLX Lite but there is a very useful getting started guide called "Guide to SDL Edit & Translating ITDs". If you don't have it I can email you the pdf, just send me a message with your email through my profile.

Good luck!
Åsa

In case nothing happens... Oct 19, 2008

it may mean that there are no matches in the TM (otherwise the outsourcer would send you the .itds with the TM already applied. So the only way to use the TM is looking for the concordance or searching for some words/terms.

Try to explain the filetype Oct 19, 2008

IDT file is Translation Memory of SDLX, while the mdb is the terminology base of the same;

The IDT file can be accessed with SDLX, by double clicking,

Try to open it directly, I thought it may be bilingual file, and the file for translation should be in other filetypes
Good luck!
