After many years of working happily with good old Trados 7 I caved in and ordered SDL Studio 2009 Freelance. There is no upgrade available so I bought the full version.
For some reason I assumed that I would be able to use the TM files I created in Trados 7 in Studio 2009 but it just occurred to me that this may not be possible? After all those years I have a large amount of very useful TM and I don't want to lose them.

Does anyone have any idea whether I can reuse them or how I can get them into the new software? I'd be very grateful for any tips or accounts of experiences!

Upgrade legacy Trados to SDL Trados 2007 Suite Oct 19, 2010

which is part of the Studio package and has been delivered to you.
Then start the Workbench, open the TMs from your old Trados and reorganize them.
Close Workbench, start Studio.
In menu "Tools" you will find an option called "Upgrade Translation Memorys".
Use it to upgrade your legacy TMs.
