I am new ish to Trados 2009. I've just finished my text and saved it within Trados. Normally I then "save target as" and send the client the (word format ususally) document. This client wants the word document and also a tmx file. Before i do anything irreversible, what should I do, "save all" or "save target as" and then "save source as"?

Thanks

tmx = the exported file from the TM Nov 10, 2011

Hi Lucy,

You can get the tmx file by exporting the TM file as follow:

- Choose "Translation Memories View" on the left side.
- Click file or right click on the TM file
- Choose "export"
- Specify where to save the exported file.
- Save file.

Now, you have the tmx file.

HTH

Are you sure you created a TM?
See this about creating a new project specially the TM part and see if you are missing something. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FUlcX2S1isc

I created a file based TM Nov 10, 2011

when I started, ticked all boxes except for update. Is there anyway to create a TM of the finished document?

Hi Lucy,
see my reply here.
Then open the TM in the Translation Memory View and export it as TMX.
