I am trying to import a tmw-file (which is the format of the TM I received from the client) into my Trados Professional 7, but it seems not to be working.

Acctually, when trying to import the file via Translator's Workbench, it only offers me the following options as import file formats: .txt, .tmx, .exp, .rtf, .sgm.

It does not offer me the option to import a .tmw file though.

Am I missing something or is Trados 7 really unable to import a .tmw-file??

Thanks for any help!

TMW is the Workbench TM format. You don't have to import it. Just open it.
