I have just installed SDLTradosStudio2011_SP2_3001 and since then I cannot import a tmx file to my Translation Memory
I get the following message.

Origin of TM? Jul 21, 2012

What is the origin of the TM? Have you been able to import TMX from the same source in Studio 2011 SP1? Have you tried opening it in Olifant?

Import to your Trados 2007 to check TM Jul 22, 2012

Have you tried to use your older versions of Trados to check if that Translation Memory is free from errors and ready to be imported?

Thanks for your imput Jul 23, 2012

Hello Dominique and Maria,
Thank you very much for your suggestions. I can import the tmx file both in Workbench and in Olifant. Also I was able to import files from the same form in SP1. Anyway, I will try to contact SDL support.
Thank you both again.
