Hi everyone,

I would like to ask some help from you with my problem on SDLX lite. Whenver I try to open the TM (translation memory) a window pops up which says "The translation memory could not be opened. Ensure that is it a valid sdlx translation memory and it is not currently in use by another application or user".

Even if I load a valid TM i still get the same message and with that, I am not able to load the TM on the editor.

I am able to load the Termbase and the itd files except for the TM.

Here are my pc details:

Operation System - Windows XP Professional Version 2002 Service Pack 3
Pentium 4
480 MB RAM

I would greatly appreciate your help on this issue.

Thank you.

Sincerely,
Stephanie

Locked file? Jul 21, 2011

You may use a free program "Unlocker" to check if the file is already in use by another application.

Thank you for your prompt response Selcuk. I'm not sure if the file is locked. Because I was able to open the itd file except for the Translation memory. But I will try your suggestion. Do you know where can I download the program?

Thanks again,
Stephanie

Or, just right-click and check properties... Jul 22, 2011

to see if it is read-only for some reason...

Right-click the file, select Properties, and check to see if the Read-only box is checked. If it is, then uncheck it! I have had this happen sometimes when I receive a TM from other people.

Hi Selcuk..thanks for your help. But both the itd and TM file seem not locked when I checked them. Could it be I missed something during the installation?

Thank you,
Stephanie

Thank you Michael..I tried it, but the "read-only" button is unchecked.

Can you suggest another solution to this? I was able to open the itd file and termbase except for the tm..

I appreciate your help.

Thank you,
Stephanie

Why SDLX lite Jul 22, 2011

SDL Trados is listed among the software in your profile, so you are possibly entitled to use a higher version of SDLX, e.g. Standard or Professional. Perhaps you can open the TM with these versions.

Thanks again Selcuk. But SDL trados is only installed on my laptop in which I don't have a Microsoft Word installed which I need for spell check. That's why I have to get it fixed/re-installed on my desktop pc.

Thank you very much for your help.


Best regards,
Stephanie
