I'm trying to import a memory into my Trados 7 but I simply can't do it since my "import" option under the "file" menu of my Workbench is in grey color, not available (as well as export). How can I solve this? I tried so many things... none worked.

You cannot import nowhere.
First create a new memory. Assign languages. Then import into it.

You need to open the existing TM exclusively May 21, 2009

If you do have a TM you'll need to close it and re-open it with the Exclusive check box enabled. This will enable the Import and Export options.

Try this May 22, 2009

Dear Maria Laura,

Create you memory and then import the memory into it like Sergei said. However, when opening a memory, check the option "exclusively" in the "open translation memory" window. You will have all your import/export options available.

Good luck!

Thank you all! Yesterday I tried to say thanks to Sergei but the forums system was down at that moment.
Thank you, all of your replies have been very useful!
