Hi all,

I'm pretty new to Trados ( I only use the SDLX part of SDL Trados 2007) and cannot seem to open the TM my client provided. When she sent me a different file I could open it but then I get the message while creating a project: Create Project Translation Memory: Excecution cannot proceed

Does anyone have a quick fix how to solve this problem?

What type of file is the TM received? Sep 29, 2009

If it is a .txt file you need to Create an empty TM (in Workbench) and then Import the file received. If you are new to TRADOS my advice is to read, read, read the manuals before attempting to do anything.
