Hello dear colleagues,

I just bought the newest version of Trados Studio and SDLX and would like to start translating with SDLX. As I am currently trying to set everything up, I keep stumbling over the following two problems:

1. Even though I have the SDLX switchboard open, I am not able to open a document with SDLX using the right mouse click. The option "translate with SDLX" does not even appear on the dropdown menu. It does give me the option "open with..." and then the SDLX symbol appears on the next dropdown. However, when I click on that, I'm taken right back to the switchboard and nowhere else from there (the screen sort of freezes at that point).

2. I cannot import a TM in ttx format into SDLX. I follow all the steps (import delimited file, etc.) from the swithboard (maintenance tab) and it only comes up with some hieroglyphics at the end.

Any help on these issues would be highly appreciated!

Thank you very much,
