I have both SDL Trados Studio 2009 (service pack 3) and SDL Trados 2007. I normally work in Across.

My agency customer provided me with word files to translate and a txt TM. I converted the txt to a tmx TM and imported it to Across and did the translations there so I had clean files and a updated tmx TM.

The customer wants unclean ttx files as well as clean files.

I tried to import the TM into 2007 so I could populate the translation from there and therefore create a billingual ttx file. However when I try to add the tmx I get the error message that the tm is invalid.

I then tried to open the files in Sudio 2009 to populate them from the tm there so I can use the TTX IT application to convert the Studio billingual files to TTX but when I open the resulting files in Tag editor I only get one language.

I'm not sure if I'm missing some step in Studio where I need to confirm I have finished editing the file.


Please help! I'm tearing my hair out

Thanks

Louisa

Open the files in TagEditor first Oct 18, 2010

Save them in TagEditor. Then open them in Studio. Import the TMX into Studio. Run through TM and save as TTX.

Sounds like a really complicated workflow to me.

Figured it out! Oct 18, 2010

Thanks Gillian

I was actually doing it correctly but I didnt see the source text in the ttx files when viewed in Tageditor as I didn't realise what I was looking for!

I know its a rather complicated way of doing things. I always plan to learn to work in Tageditor properly but the next job from this client always seems to come along before I manage it!

Thanks

Louisa
