Dear All,

My SDL Trados Studio 2009 Freelance (free trial I downloaded yesterday, I bought the full package this morning but only downloaded the 2007 package to save time right now) is refusing to import 2007 TM files : I first have to go to the "Translators workbench" (?), then get myself a "User ID".

I cannot find any of these key words on the screen, in the Trados menus, nor in the help menu...

Can you help me on this, please ?

Thank you very much.

Best regards,

isabrucher

You can find/set User ID under Settings menu in Trados Workbench Aug 8, 2011

Hello,

I have never encountered this error, but your user ID is available in Trados Workbench (part of Trados 2007) - click Settings menu and there you will have an "User ID..." entry, where you can set or check you User ID.

I hope it helps.

Regards,
Marcin Rogóż

Did it work? Aug 16, 2011

Hi Isa

Did it work?
I have the same problem but nothing works for me. I even opened a ticket at SDL Support. While waiting for them to reply, I just wondered anybody knows a solution.

Settings menu? Sep 12, 2011

Hello,

I'm also new to Trados and have downloaded Studio and 2007 as instructed but a client has asked me to convert a 2007 memory for the first time and I've got the same problem. It's asking me for a User ID but I can't even find the Settings menu in Trados 2007 to set up an ID! No doubt it's obvious when you know but I've en searched in the idex for settings and nothing came up, which is a little worrying really.

Many thanks.

Claire

The Settings menu is in Trados Workbench Sep 12, 2011

Hi Claire,

Open Trados SDL Trados Translator's Workbench, that's where you will find the Settings menu.

Thank you Sep 12, 2011

Thanks you Nora - I'd been looking (hopelessly!) at the Trados Synergy screen, not realising that I had to go to the individual component parts on the LH side. How ridiculous that you should have to go back to an older programme, which you have no desire or intention of using, to do something on a more recent programme! I've done the beginners' webinar for Trados, but you really shouldn't have to do a beginner's webinar for an older program in order to use it!

Settings now found, a user ID set up and the TM seems to have been upgraded successfully.

Much appreciated.

Claire

You don't need to go through Trados 2007 to do this. Open Studio >home window>upgrade translation memories.
The wizard will take you through all the steps. You can upgrade tmw and txt this way.

Yes but... Sep 12, 2011

Hi Emma,

Yes, this is what I tried in the first instance, but it wouldn't let me proceed until I'd gone back into Trados 2007 and set up a User ID. Once I'd done that it worked fine - very strange!

Thanks ,

Claire
