Hey Guys,

For some reason whenever I try to upload the TM for this project to my 2011 studio I can't "See" the file to actually upload it.

I've tried putting it on my desktop, other folders..etc. but it goes invisible so I can't select it for my project.

What do I need to do to be able to use the TM? This has never happened to me before. Please help!

Kind Regards,

..the TM you are trying to upload is in Studio format is it? (i.e. sdltm). If it's a TMX export from an older version of Trados (.tmw) you'll need to choose those options from the drop-down box.

This will upgrade the memory to Studio format for you.
