Hello

I am using SDL Trados Studio 2011 SP2, and this package does not include Workbench to use Concordance search.
I need to update a TM according to a glossary list that the customer send to me. The package the customer sent to me includes:
1. Glossary list.xls
2. TM.iix
3. TM.mdf
4. TM.mtf
5. TM.mwf
6. TM.tmx
7. TM.txt

There is no such a ttx file. How should I do to update the TM?

Please advice.

Thank you

tmx Sep 13, 2013

Hi,

Use the tmx to update your 2011 TM and Glossary converter (OpenExchange) to convert the xls file.

HTH,

Bernard

Thanks Bernard.

What if in case we don't have xls file (or any resource document), is there any way that we can handle the TM itself (ppdate, change the terms....) in trados?

Customer's requirement Sep 13, 2013

And one more thing, the customer suggested 2 ways to update the TM:
1. Fix it directly in the txt file we exported from TM.

2. Fix it in Workbench, go to Tools-> Concordance.

As far as I know, SDL 2011 does not have Workbench, so it seems that I have to go for the 1st way. If so, all what I do is to search for the terms in the txt file and fix them directly there? And then, how can I update the txt file back to the TM?

I am kinda confused with this task.

TMX Sep 13, 2013

As Bernard said, use the tmx to update your TM. Open the TM in Translation Memories and select Import. You can import the TMX directly into your Studio TM, providing the language settings match. If the client has provided you with a TMX you don;t need Workbench. You can edit the Studio TM in Translation Memories.
