Hi,

I need some help, I purchased Trados 2009, I also taken some training courses, but I don´t know how to create a Translation Memory from documents already translated without Trados, like word documents that I have stored into my computer. So, I need them uploaded into my TRADOS so they can help my future translations. Could you help me please, if posible indicating the steps to take?

Thank you
Valentina

Use winalign Apr 9, 2010

Winalign is part of Suite 2007 (which comes bundled with Studio under a separate licence). If you have already installed 2207, then you will have a tab in STudio for "align translated documents" in your home window.
This was discussed here:

Here are the instructions step by step

Align or clean up Apr 9, 2010

If you only have monolingual versions of those files (source and target): Create an alignment project in Studio 2009 and align the files.

If the files are legacy Trados bilingual RTF or TTX: Put copies of all those files into a folder, create a new blank TM in Translators Workbench 2007 (!), clean up all files from that folder with the "Update TM" options active to get all the segments into that 2007 TM. Then either 1) start Studio 2009 and upgrade the 2007 TM to a 2009 TM, or 2) export the 2007 TM as TMX and import it into an existing 2009 TM of your choice.
