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!

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).
