Hi everyone:
I found the TM exported from SDL Trados 2009 (.tmx format) cannot be imported into Workbench.
Did anyone have the same problem and can someone give me some tips about how to solve this problem?
Thanks in advance!!!

I haven't had any problems so far, please see the procedure below:

1) Export 2009 DB as tmx
2) Open Workbench and create a new tmw file with corresponding language pair
3) Select tmx 1.4 and import tmx from Studio 2009

Hope this helps,

Bernard

Thanks,but... Jul 27, 2010

Bernard, that's exactly what I did, everytime Workbench gave me an error message.
My client wants me to deliver an unclean file, which cannot be produced by SDL Trados Studio, so I decided to import the TM from Trados Studio into Workbench and use the TM to translate the whole file again...

Can we see your SDLTM? Jul 27, 2010

Hi Henry,

Can we see your SDLTM so we can try this and maybe reproduce the problem? Drop me an email so I have your details and I'll send you a link for a secure ftp.

Regards

Just an update Jul 28, 2010

Hi,

I know Henry resolved this now with help from a Chinese Forum somewhere. The solution was similar to this KB for anyone with a similar issue.
