I understood there are ways to export TM in Excel files to TMX, but is there a quicker and easier way to import TM in Excel files to Studio 2009 TM?
Thank you for your help in advance.

My quickest way is Excel > Tab delimited Unicode > SDLX TM import > SDLX TMX export > T2009 New TM > TMX import.

TMX maker Mar 7, 2011

This is the third thread on the topic in three of four days.
As I wrote in the previous ones, I recently wrote a proz-hosted article on how to do this.
The "TMX Maker" tool makes the process a bit simpler than going through SDL Edit as suggested by Soonthon: instead of creating a TM, importing and then exporting and deleting the now superfluous TM, you can generate the TMX in a single step (and you also get a bit more control on what goes into the TMX).
That said, I'll add the SDL Edit solution to the article anyway. Some people might prefer it for whatever reason.

Thank you Mar 7, 2011

Thank you Soonthon and Farkas for your advice.

Farkas, I have read your article before I posted this topic but wasn't sure the procedure was connected to the use of Studio 2009.
Thank you for your time.

Well, blissfully, TMX can now be considered an industry-wide standard. Virtually all CAT tools (icluding all current and recent versions of Trados and SDLX) can import and export TMX, so whenever you want to move a translation memory around, TMX is the default solution.
I hope the article is clear, let me know if you have trouble.
