I just got the SDL Trados Studio Starter Version and I need to translate a project using a specific TM sent by the client. I've been following many tutorials but I can't seem to figure it out, especially because I can't access the Translation Memories Navigation Pane in Starter.
Thanks in advance for your help!

You probably don't need to open it Jul 19, 2011

Hi Annie,
I know nothing about the Starter Edtition, but in order to use the TM to translate a file you probably have to simply add it to your project. Opening the TM is not necessary.

Dubbel click Jul 19, 2011

I suggest this close WB if it's open then dubbel click on the TM and then a work bench session with the TM should open

importing the TM Jul 19, 2011

Thanks a lot for your answer. I've been looking through all the tutorials. I created a new TM, then I tried to import the txt file that they sent me, but it won't let me. I'm really new at using CAT tools ann I'm kinda running out of time. thank you for your help!

Not txt Jul 19, 2011

You cannot import txt into Studio. Ask the client for tmx format or ask somebody to do it for you (import of txt and export as tmx).

TXT... Jul 19, 2011

... or use the upgrade route to merge the TXT to your SDLTM. But this may not be possible in the Starter version... but Freelance or above is fine.

No need to do more work outside of Studio unnecessarily.
