Hello! I started using Multiterm 2011 Extract;
I need to create a glossary in the two languages, the source (EN) and the target (IT).
The guide suggests to extract terms from a bilingual file such as a TM.
As I'm working with Trados Studio 2011, I have some TMs in the Sdltm format that are not supported for this particular step.
How can I convert them into a supported format such as tmx or tmw.
Thanks in advance for a prompt reply.
Good work.

Hi Piero,

open translation memory (.sdltm) and click on "Export".
In the "Export Options" window you can choose .tmx file type.
