I have a large project in PageMaker and I need to import/export these files into Trados, which I can't do without the Filter Pack. But I can't find it anymore. From what I heard, Trados provided it for free, then they sold it to SDLX, then SDLX took it off their website.

Does anyone know where I could find this? If you have it, could you please send it to me by e-mail? (provided that the software hasn't gone commercial...)

Which Trados version? Oct 4, 2004

Hi 'LQ',
Which version of Trados do you have?

Note that the filters for DTP formats are part of T6.5 Freelance, for example

Best regards, Ralf

You do not need the FilterPack Oct 4, 2004

to process PM or QXP or InDesign with Trados. What you need in that case, are Story Collectors, which are still part of Trados, as Ralf stated.
The FilterPack was delivered (or could be downloaded) with Trados 3, after that it was no more available. What it did, was the conversion of tagged text, delivered by StoryCollectors, to RTF, in order to process those files in Word.
Even if you would get FilterPack today, it is not compatible with the newer formats - and does not convert files from StoryColletors from Trados 6/6.5.

Use TagEditor Oct 4, 2004

After exporting the PM files to tagged text format. Open TagEditor and Click on the Filke menu. Click on Open and Select Pagemaker tagged(.txt) as the file type. Tardos 6.5 will convert the file automatically. You can save the bilungual file in .ttx format and after translation you can save the target file back as Pagemaker tagged.

I got the PM plugin - how do I export? Oct 4, 2004

Hello again,

Thanks to everyone for their replies. I got the Story Collector plugin for PM (it was in the Trados 6.5 zip file on their FTP), but now I need to know how to do the actual process of exporting.

I've never done this kind of export before, so any help will be appreciated.

Also, I'm getting an error that says "neither of the two text filters are installed" when I try to run the Story Collector. Any idea of what this might be?

By the way, I forgot to mention the versions (thanks Ralf!). I have Trados 6.5 Freelance and PageMaker 7.0.
