So I got Studio to work, INCLUDING the Autosuggest feature. Hurray. I could even generate a dictionary by converting an sdltm.

Next step: converting a TMX into an sdltm. This was the result (kind of familiar if you've worked with SDL before):

SDL Studio,Trados,SDL Trados,AutoSuggest,TMX import,Tra

This particular TMX was generated with a tool from the site of the European Union. It only creates version 1.1 TMXes. Could that be the problem? The help files don't mention any specific requirements for TMX files here, but when you have worked with SDL a few years you learn to think find your own solutions, so I imported the file into a new TM with Trados 2007, then exported it into a version 1.4 TMX and presto! It worked.

Hope this is a helpful tip for some.

Error in the file header... Mar 31, 2010

No, the problem is the header of the file is incorrect.
A lot of tools experience different problems with these files, e.g. DVX is unable to import it.
It's a well known bug for the developpers.

The help files don't mention any specific requirements for TMX files here, but when you have worked with SDL a few years you learn to think find your own solutions, so I imported the file into a new TM with Trados 2007, then exported it into a version 1.4 TMX and presto! It worked.

So I did many years ago
You cans also import the file to a T2009 TM, then point this TM directly, a temporary well formed TMX will be created automatically (and deleted, if you don't want to keep it).

Cheers

TMX > SDLTM > AS dictionary Apr 1, 2010

Hi Marinus,
I support GG's idea to import the TMX to SDLTM and create the AS dictionary only then. This worked for me with several EU DGT TMs.

(Oooh, so many abbreviations...)

Difference between AutoSuggest TM and main TM in Studio 2009 May 25, 2010

I downloaded the EU DGT dictionaries as well, and my question is how I can use it as an AutoSuggest dictionairy rather than load it as a standard TM in a project. If I go to Tools -> Options, it tells me the AutoSuggest dictionary has to have a *.bpm extension.

Any thoughts on whether I should convert the standard Studio 2009 TM (i.e. the EU DGT dictionary) to a *.bpm and whether this is possible?

Thanks.

Marcel.
