Hello,

As I was just reading about AutoSuggest 2011 in another thread (here: http://www.proz.com/forum/translator_resources/214736-trados_2011:_is_it_essential_how_did_you_learn_how_to_use_it.html#1863247), I was wondering what happened to my old AutoSuggest files (files with the extension *.bpm).

If I try to open them in SDL Trados Studio 2011, then I receive an error message:

"Fehler - Dieser Dateityp wird nicht unterstützt."

Sorry, but I just discovered that I forgot the English translation:

"Error - This file type is not recognized."

I was already wondering, after I switched from 2009 to 2011, why I was not receiving so many proposals any more. Is it possible that SDL Trados Studio 2011 no longer works with bpm files?

Cheers,

Marina

Addendum:
MultiTerm 2011 also does not recognize the bpm files. Strange...

Yes, you can Dec 24, 2011

Hi Marina,

I'm not sure what you mean when you're saying "trying to open" do you mean you're trying to open AutoSuggest files with the File command?

You have to open Project Settings, go to your language pair, click on AutoSuggest Dictionaries and select one with the Add button.

I've been using AutoSuggest Dictionaries generated with either version in both 2009/11.

HTH

The files were missing in the appropriate path. Dec 24, 2011

Hello Bernard,

After I activated the integration with MyMemory, I discovered that the AutoSuggest files were missing in the appropriate path of Studio 2011. Now I can add them to my files again.

Thanks for your help!

Marina
