Dear Trados users,


I'm in need to convert Trados TM 2007 (.tmw) into .txt or .tmx.
Can anybody suggest a solution (maybe third party converter?) or possibly be so kind and convert/export it for me? ^^


Thank you in advance.
Best regards,
Vincent

Where did you get the tmw file from? Oct 15, 2011

Assuming that you have a complete Trados 2007 TM, which consists of several files, not just a TMW file. On your profile it is mentioned that you are using Trados. In this case I recommend rtm and just use Workbench to export the TMW to TXT or TMX.

Thank you :) Oct 15, 2011

Dear Siegfried,


Thank you for your suggestion.
I'm experiencing technical issue with my Trados, and the workbench always said that the TM is too large for the demo version (I have the full version one).
It is actually quite easy to export TMW files, as you have wrote down belowicon_smile.gif

I have searched this forum and have tried several ways to get my Trados work normally again, but it looks like that time is not on my side ^^
I'm considering to repair the installation / reinstalling Trados again, but I have to finish this project in under 2-3 hours.


Thank you for your help anyway.

Is it a big TM? Oct 15, 2011

Hi,

If it's a big TM you might try File>REORGANISE and then try the export again.

Good luck!

Solution Oct 15, 2011

I don't know that this thread is still on going because I didn't post the exact solution in hereicon_smile.gif


Main problem in this thread:
How to convert TMW to TMX without Trados environment?
You can't do it, since exporting TMW files into TXT or TMX file requires Trados Workbench. The demo version of Trados will not work, except your TM is less than 100kb, or less I think. CMIIW about the size limitation.
I have never seen a third party converter that is able to handle TWM files.

Solution:
Ask someone with a full licensed Trados to convert it for you.


Additional problem:
Full licensed Trados suddenly converted back into demo mode.

Solution:
Uninstall
Restart
Install
Restart
Voila

Don't ask me further about the solution for this one, as it didn't make sense to me why should I re-install Trados and restart my Windows, even when I didn't make any changes in the application.


Thank you for your curiosity, Miloš and Carvallo ^^
