I received the files to be translated, form SDLX.FMP, antoher one is .itd. When trying to open them in Trados Tageditor, I get the message "SDLX 2005 or later must be installed to use this functionality. Could you help me, how can I open the files?

What is your version of SDL Trados? Jan 6, 2009

You only open the itd-file(s). The fmp is only for SDLX, and you never open it in SDLX either.

I have SDL Trados Version 7 Jan 6, 2009

TagEditor 7.1.0.719, the same with the Translator´s Workbench. I tried to open the .itd file but get the error message SDLX 2005 SR or later must be installed to use this functionality. What am I doing wrong? Am I using the fmp file for something? I probably should know but so far I only had .xml files to translate with Trados.

Which files to deliver in SDLX translation? Jan 7, 2009

Hi there, I would appreciate help - first translation using SDLX and it went well. Now I am a bit confused which files I am supposed to deliver to the customer. Could you kindly help?

Just the itd Jan 7, 2009

Put the itd-file(s) into a zip-archive and send them to the customer. He can update his tm himself.
Regards

SDLX SR or later must be installed Jan 28, 2009

I have exactly the same problem and reading these answers has not helped.
Can anyone please tell me why I cannot open itd files with TagEditor??
Must I upgrade something?
Must I buy SDLX 2005 SR or later??

.fmp file is for correct font-mapping May 29, 2015

Even though the topic is old it still shows first in the Google search so I am adding the answer found in the SDL KB (knowledge base):
http://kb.sdl.com/?portalid=23&articleid=1256#tab:homeTab:crumb:7:artId:1256
In short FMP file is generated automatically by SDLX when project is created.
For the translators: just copy the file together with the ITD in the same folder and start translating in SDLX Edit. The .fmp file will be useful if you try to Preview/Create Translation after you are done.
