Hey,

I have a huge TM in Workbench but now the client wants me to use SDL. Can I convert my Trados Translation Memory so that I can use it SDL (Access database)?

As usual it´s urgent...

SDL is a software vendor Jul 15, 2011

So it will be hard to use anything there...
If you mean SDLX, exporrt Trados TM to TMX and import it in a SDLX TM.
If you mean Trados Studio, use the Update TM functionality in Studio.

Convert TMX into MDB Jul 15, 2011

"If you mean SDLX, export Trados TM to TMX and import it in a SDLX TM."

Seems to be as clear as water BUT could you please give more details. I know how to export a TM to TMX but then how do I do? Do I open this TMX file in Access? Or how do I convert the TMX into MDB?

Well, seems you indeed meant SDLX Jul 15, 2011

So my guessing was not that bad.

Export TM to TMX.
Then start SDLX, create a new Translation Memory there and import what you exported.
