I have a client who has sent me a TM export in .txt format. Is there any way to import this file into an existing Studio 2011 TM?

Thanks for your advice!

TXT->TMX Nov 15, 2011

Hi David,

If it works the same as in 2009, you first have to create a TM in 2007, import the txt file, and then export it as TMX (or upgrade the TM from the Tools menu or from within the project creation wizard).
