Hello,

One of my clients sent me a translation memory, which I was required to use for
his project. He later informed me that the job has been postponed. I want to
know whether I can see the source as well as the target text in the memory so
that I may add it to my own translation memory? I want to see the contents so
as to ensure that the translation is not bad as it will go into my memory.

Thanks and regards,

Chopra

Hi Chopra,

1.) Select the TM in your CAT tool.
2.) Export it into a TMX or txt file.
3.) You can open the txt file in Wordpad or a lot of other applications. I would advise a dedicated TM editor, such as Olifant, which can also deal with TMX files.

Kind regards,
Attila
