Hello,

I got this translation memory from a customer of mine, but it was created with an higher version of Trados (8). I'd like to know how to convert this tmx file into a usable tmw file.

Thanks for your support,

Franzi

Import function May 3, 2009

Hello Franzi,

you should create a new TM and then import the .tmx file, just as if you would do with an exported TM in .txt format.

Hope this helps

TMX -> TWB or the opposite? May 3, 2009

¿Do you need to convert a tmx to twb file? ¿Or just the opposite?

As far as I know, you do not need to do anything to convert it.
Just import the TMX memory with the _Import option_ to the TWB memory and save it as a TWB memory format (tmw). Thats all. Take in acount that they ares 4 tmx format versions, so some formatting may be lost.

While we wait... May 4, 2009

While we wait for a better answer from the experts, it would be advisable to ask your client for a .txt TM. Any .txt TM can be imported into your Trados-Workbench version.
