I have received a project package (which contains 2 files and a TM) and no matter how hard I try I can't seem to find the memory. It is an I have extracted the project packages files (which have a file extension of .wsxz) from the .zip file and saved them to a known location on
my PC. However I can only see the two files and no TM. What am I doing wrong? The client has confirmed he has sent it so there must be something I have not done.

Thanks for any help you could give me

Check inside the WSXZ Jun 3, 2014


The two WSXZ files are in fact the packages. Simply opening these in Trados should suffice and you should be able to see the associated TM in the project settings.

If the TM does not show up, you can double-check if it is really included by simply changing the file name extension from WSXZ to ZIP. The packages are really ZIP files in disguise that contain all resources including the TM (either in TMX or SDLTM format, depending on your client's version of WorldServer).

Are you sure the TM isn't included in the .wsxz files? Jun 3, 2014

I've worked with these files before. Open them in Trados using the "Open Package" button. A window comes up saying "This package contains multiple files. Do you want to view these files as one merged file in Studio?" Click yes and carry on with the file opening wizard. This *should* open the files with the TM already contained within it.

Hope this helps!

As already mentioned... Jun 3, 2014

... it is quite likely that the TM is included inside the package. So if you open the package in Studio you may well find the TM is already attached to the projects.
