When I try to open a TM using Trados Freelance 6.5, I get the message "50022 - This version of Workbench doesn't support v7.00 translation memories.

Does this mean that I need to upgrade to version 7.0, or is there a workaround?

Many thanks for your assistance.

Upgrade or export TM as text May 6, 2009

Hi Stephen,

AFAIR the two versions of Trados are not compatible.

You can either upgrade to version 7 or ask your client/contact to export the TM as text and send it to you. You can then import it into a new TM in your version of Trados.

Export for 6.x version May 6, 2009

Make sure they select "Translator's Workbench 2.x-6.x" under 'Save as Type' when exporting the TM.
