Hi

I have Trados 2014, but I client sends me word source files with .tmx, explaining that half of the matches can be taken from .tmx. Now I need to know that how to use .tmx with Trados 2014, can I convert .tms into .sdltm or .xliff file, (if I can add it to soem exiting TM), as it will help me to get matches or somehow can I directly add .tms as trados 2014 TM.
Please guide, thanks in advance.

Import the TMX, or upgrade it May 23, 2014

Hi,

You can either import a TMX into an existing (matching) translation memory, or upgrade it so you have a new one based on only the contents of the TMX. If I was you I'd upgrade it, add it to your project alongside your own Translation Memory so you can use it as a reference and also pretranslate against it.

Thanks Feb 16, 2015

Worked very well, but relatively slowly of course, with the large TM I have.
