Hi all!

I recently purchased SDL Trados 2011 and has been using it for quite some time now. However, I am having problems sending TMs in the old version format such as .tmw with iix, .mdf, .mtf, and .mwf files. The outsourcer that I am currently working with right now is using Trados Workbench or an older version of Trados that is. They send me TMs in .tmw with iix, .mdf, .mtf, and .mwf files and when I finish the project I send them the upgraded memory in Trados which is in .tmx format. I was wondering if there's a way to send a TM from Trados 2011 to an older version format (.tmx to .tmw, .iix, .mdf, .mtf, .mwf files)?

I will appreciate any help. Thanks!

Best regards,

Hi Stephanie,

tmx is a translation exchange format file, so all you have to do is export your Studio 2011 TM as tmx - right-click on your TM under Translation Memories and export, create a new TM under 2007 and import the tmx and you're done.

Trados 2007 is needed in any case Apr 17, 2012

Hi Bernard, Hi Stephanie,

So, in any case, it is necessary to possess the Trados 2007 version for creating the upgraded TM in txt or tmx ? Thank you for your answer.
