I urgently need to import 8 ttx source files (Dutch into US English) into SDLX (version 2007) to take with me when I travel tomorrow, because my father is seriously ill. I have imported ttx files into SDLX before, but somehow it doesn't seem to work this time. When I go into SDL Exchange, adding the eight files, I encounter: "Import - Languages: The following unknown language has been encountered in an import file. Please select the language to be used. English (United States) (which is the correct target language).
Whatever I do - retain the English (US) or change the setting to any other language, I am then told that the conversion has taken place but my itd file does not contain any segments at all.

Can someone please help me with this?

Many thanks,
Anne

The ttx files are for sure US english? Aug 21, 2010

Just a thought.

I have ever only tried doing things the other way around (from itd to ttx and then harvest the translation).

No, they are from Dutch for translation into English Aug 21, 2010

But this would hardly be an 'unexpected language', since I always translate from Dutch. I am completely baffled by this. It has happened with another translation a couple of days ago, so it is not a specific problem with this file but a clash between versions, or because no TM was yet applied to the .ttx file. I don't know. Just started from the doc files now, since I made it clear to my client that I work in SDLX. But the compatibility problem annoys me. Thanks for replying!

I fill all TTX target segments with words e.g. copy all from source before using SDL exchange, or I will have ITD file without target segments to translate at all. For ITD>TTX exchange, it is simpler.

Best regards,

Have resolved this now thanks to a helpful email. I managed to disable Multiterm and processed the files. Thank you for all the help.
