Dear all,

I hope this post finds all of you well.

The client sent ITD files to be translated and in the same time sent a .mdb file (I think as a TM???).

Can any one help/advice me how could I import this to be used as a TM.

I need any advice regarding this issue.

Do you have SDLX? If not ask them to export .mdb to tmx (if it is indeed a translation memory) or use this application http://www.translationzone.com/openexchange/app/sdlxtranslationmemoryplug-inforsdltradosstudio-129.html

Similarly for .itd (if you need Trados ttx)

Open the ".itd" file from SDLX
On the SDLX menu:
FILE > Trados > Export to TRADOSTag TTX format.

Studio can also handle itd files directly, see here:
