Convert? Which version are you using? Jun 17, 2009

Hello Alessandra,

convert? You simply have to open you TM, the first segment with the relative command and start translating. Are you using Studio? Wish to work in TagEditor (in any of the previous versions)?

You might want to indicate your SDL Trados version as clearly requested whenever a thread is opened in this forum

If you are posting about a CAT tool or other software program, including the product name, version, and any other relevant details will avoid confusion and allow you to get/give better forum help.

It helps helping you

Manual Jun 17, 2009

Familiarising yourself with the tool by reading the user manual or getting formal training would be a good idea too...

Do you have TRADOS? Jun 17, 2009

Alessandra, I am under the impression that you do not have TRADOS. If you do, maybe this is your first time using it, in which case my impression is that you have not read anything. In both cases my advice is to learn the application and then accept jobs requiring the use of this software. It is a complex and complicated application. Read the manual several times, and practice before diving into deeper waters.
