My customer has sent me a TM for a project I've worked on before & I want to export my old TM for this project into it but although the Trados files are visible when I try to import them I cannot because Workbench is requesting a .txt file which I dont have, I only have the 5 files ie the TM and the 4 index files, apologies if this has been asked before I know there's a way round it but have forgotten - do I need to create a txt file out of the Trados files, I can't recall how to do this, thanks in advance!!

Open the Tm and create an export file (File > Export)

does it help ?

And remember that there is a whole list of possible import files types available, if you click on the arrow at the right hand end of the field. That makes it possible to import a previously exported file, if I remember correctly.

Get training Dec 1, 2009

Honestly I think the best suggestion I can make in your situation is to look for Trados training via some Trados vendor or someone offering such training in your area. You will learn to use the tool with more confidence and will be able to exploit its possibilities better. Trados is an industrial-strength tool and therefore training makes total sense. Good luck!
