Dear All,

I have been trying to add a TM to a project with no success. At first it seemed that the problem was due to the version of Trados I was using (2009), but as I tried to use SDL 2007 I still faced the same issues and continued to get the same "FAILED TO OPEN THE SELECTED TM (error code 2147467254)" message.

I have contacted the PM and he checked the file, but he is able to see it with no issues.

Any ideas before I have to quit the project?

Thank you in advance!

Tais

Did you upgrade the TM in Studio 2009? Oct 8, 2010

You can't open the TM from SDLX directly in Studio, but need to upgrade it first (Tools - Upgrade translation memory).
Or open it in SDLX (not SDL Trados or something else) and export to TMX, then create a new TM in Studio and import the content there.

Thank you for your response.

Studio 2009 would not let me upgrade the TM, showing me the same "failed to open(...)error" . Also, I do not have SDLX - I was told I should have it, but it is nowhere to be found in my computer.

So you know the reason Oct 8, 2010

You need to install SDLX.
When you install SDL Trados 2007 Suite, SDLX will be installed with it.
If you cant find SDLX; install SDL Trados 2007 Suite again - you do not need to uninstall or change anything, just use the installer and install again.

Jerzy,

I was able to install SDL 2007 again and open the TM. I really appreciated your help, thank you very, very much!

Warm regards,
