Hello,

I have a TM in txt format that I need to import into the Trados Studio 2009 Translation Memory? Is this possible? How can I do it?

Thanks
Luciana

No TXT Import Jun 13, 2009

You won't be able to import your TXT file in Trados Studio 2009.

Here are the formats that are supported :
- Translation Memory Exchange Documents (*.tmx, * .tmz.gz)
- SDL XLIFF Bilingual Documents (*.sdlxliff)
- TRADOStag Documents (*.ttx)
- SDL Edit Documents (*.itd)

If you only have the TXT file, I would create a new memory with SDL Trados 2007 Freelance Suite and import the TXT file.

Once you created your memory that way, you can either upgrade it with the "upgrade memory" fonction in Trados Studio 2009 or export its content to a TMX file and import that TMX in your Trados Studio 2009 memory.

Hope it helps

Great! Jun 13, 2009

Hi Stéphan,

I tried your second option (export its content to a TMX file and import that TMX in your Trados Studio 2009 memory) and it worked. Next time I will try the upgrade.

Thank you very much.
