I have pagemaker 7.0 installed on my system and Trados 2007.

When I try opening one of the pagemaker files in Tag Editor, the file does not open and an error with the number 8003 saying that format is not recognized is displayed. Is there any resolution for this at all. Tried searching the help files, but didnt help.

The custonmer has provided files in Pagemaker 6.5. The only version of pagemaker available to download is 7.0.2, which I did. Even that didnt help. The same error was shown.

Look forward to hearing from collegues.

SDL Trados comes with a lot of documentation Jan 15, 2011

Please try to follow the instructions in chapter "PageMaker Files" in the "SDL Trados 2007 File Formats Reference Guide" which should be available on your PC.

Is the Story Collector add-on installed in PageMaker? Jan 15, 2011

Sorry for the obvious question, but that is how the workflow intended for PM files works. You cannot open the PMD directly in TagEditor.

Please refer to Chap. 4 in the File Formats Reference Guide.

You may also want to refer to http://deu.proz.com/forum/sdl_trados_support/156647-trados_2007_and_pagemaker_tagged_txt_files.html for solving some common problems.

Saludos

Yes. Do not misunderstand omnipotence of Trados.

File Format Reference Guide Jan 16, 2011

this document is to be found in your Trados program group, subgroup Documentation - just point to Start, Programs and so on and you get there.
It is worth reading, as it includes a detailed step-by-step description how to process various format. Pagemaker ist detailed described there, among others.
