I received sample files that I am supposed to use in SDL Trados Studio but they are .bpm files and I have no idea how to open them.

Could anybody help?

Thank you.

BPM Files Sep 6, 2010

Hi Toulousaine,

You have been given AutoSuggest Dictionaries that you use to help you during your Translation. To use them go to Tools - Options - Language Pairs then select the relevant language pair and add the BPM under AutoSuggest Dictionaries.

Then, make sure that under Tools - Options - AutoSuggest you have checked the boxes to enable AutoSuggest and to use AutoSuggest Dictionaries.

Now when you start a translation using this language pair you will be presented with subsegment matches as you type, in addition to matches from MultiTerm or AutoText if you are using these too.

Hi, SDL Support.

Is there a way I can see the content of these files or edit them?
