I just got Trados Studio 2014, but my client still uses Trados 2007. When I sent them my completed files, they were not able to review them (they asked for clean and unclean, but I can only send them clean). My exported TM doesn't even work for them, because the segmenetation is different. When I try to use the SDL TTX it! tool, I get an error message that says "Settings file invalid or not found".. any ideas? I just bought this software and am very frustrated!
Thanks.

Not Jan 29, 2014

I am not the biggest expert in the field, but for as far I know you can convert from 2007 to Studio (did it myself), but not the other way around.

If your client works with Trados 2007, I would suggest you do the same.

Too late Jan 29, 2014

I already spent the money on Studio 2014 (didn't have any Trados before), and I'm working on a Windows 8 computer, does Trados 2007 even run in Windows 8? I was told I might have problems, even if they could provide me with the Trados 2007.

SDL Legit will work Jan 29, 2014

hi, if you go to the Welcome tab in Studio 2014, you will find the Open-exchange app SDL Legit. this app has the possibility of creating bilingual Trados 7-like word docs using a .sdlxliff file.
do give it a try, it should work.
there are also other apps on Open-exchange that will let you convert Studio TMs in Trados 7 TMs.

good luck!

This shouldn't be a problem. Go to SDL Open Exchange, download LegIt and convert your file to bilingual doc or ttx.

By the way, Trados 2007 will run in Win 8. You need to make sure your Office version is 32-bit. But I wouldn't recommend going that way. You made the right decision to get Studio 2014.

Try with SDL Legit Jan 29, 2014

I think that the tool you would need is "SDL Legit"

http://www.translationzone.com/openexchange/app/sdllegit-453.html

I haven't tried it but it seems to do what you need.

There is also an article about it in Paul Filkin's blog:

I hope this helps!

Daniel
