Hi everyone,

I´m having a huge problem here. I received a project from a client and started to translate it on SDL Studio 2009, but now, after a lot of thousands words translated, the client tells me that he needs the translation done on Trados 2007.

Can you please tell me how to convert a sdltm file to ttx file? I tried to open the TM on Trados 2007, but I´m only allowed to open ttx files.

Thanks in advanced for your help!

This is what you are asking for.
A SDLTM is a translation memory, a TTX file is a bilingual translatable file.
What you can do is export SDLTM to a TMX file and import that one in Workbench.
But you have a better option:
Create TTX files from the translatables provided by your customer and then open those TTX files in Studio and translate them using the TM you have been using until now.
