No native support for SGML files in Studio 2011?

Hello, my name is José and I'm one of those "rare as hen's teeth" internal translators at a major corporation. My supervisor and I have been getting Trados Studio 2011 up and running on her laptop as a trial run before taking the plunge and installing it on my machine. Getting our TM converted was fairly straightforward, our .ini files a bit less so (apparently they had to be "saved as" with UTF-8 encoding first).

Anyway, after all that, we find that opening .sgm files, which is our bread and butter here (all of the files in our Content@ database are in .sgm format) is NOT natively supported!? Seems a pretty major omission on the part of the salesperson to not tell my supervisor that before she sold her the upgrade.

So let me get this straight-- I have to keep Trados Workbench from 2007 installed on my machine and "prepare" .sgm files by converting them to .ttx files first, just so I have the honor and privilege of opening them in Studio 2011? Please tell me I can at least directly save .sgm target files.

What am I missing here? It seems like all we've paid for is to add a couple of previously unnecessary steps to our process.

Hi José,

As we discussed yesterday you can do this by converting your ini to a Studio filetype, but based on HTML rather than XML. Hopefully you'll have some success with this now in opening your *.SGM files directly in Studio, but I didn't want to leave this thread open as we also discussed it here:
