Hi everybody,

I ran into the following scenario:

I received a ttx and doc file from my client, translated the ttx in Studio, delivered the translated ttx and doc files. The end client's reviewer made some changes to the doc. To incorporate those, I aligned the source and reviewed doc files and created a tmx file in WinAlign. When importing the tmx in the Studio TM Editor, all seems to run smooth until I check some of the segments the reviewer has changed: they haven't been updated in the Studio TM, although the TMX file looks ok to me and contains the reviewed translation information. Am I making a mistake somewhere, or is this a _major_ Studio bug?

Thanks in advance for helping.

Klaus

Why align? Oct 13, 2009

Hi Klaus,
my reply is a little off-topic, but I don't understand why you aligned the two files in the first place. Wouldn't it be easier to implement the end client's changes directly into Studio? That way you would be sure that all changes are stored in the TM.

Hi Stanislav,

Had I known that the TMX import doesn't work, I would certainly have taken your approach, but I thought I would save time avoiding to type those changes manually...

Will look at that later Oct 13, 2009

Hi Klaus, I'm a little under stress now, but I will certainly look at that later on. I'm myself interested in the import options, as I have so far only updated my current TMW TMs for Studio. Please allow me for some time.
