I'm trying to upgrade a large TM, and it says the file is corrupted.
Somone suggested I export the TM to a TMX format and then reinter it as an SDL format, but even that doesn't work, as I get the same message of corruption when I try to the the process in Trados.

Can someone help me?

Which package are you using? Sep 6, 2014

Studio or Trados 2007?

If Trados 2007, you could try exporting a txt file and having a look at it in Word. It is probably the top part that is corrupted in some way (i.e. the coding).

Next create a new memory (with no segments) but using the same settings. Export this as a txt file and open it in Word. It will just contain the coding. Copy your segments from your old memory and paste in the right place (i.e. between the top and bottom coding). I know it sounds complicated but it may work.

Next update your new memory with this txt file.

Studio 2014 Sep 6, 2014

Hi Marijke,

I'm using Studio 2014.
This particular TM has 10,000 + segments... updating it by hand would be an impossible task.
I sure hope something else can be done... as I'm really not super savvy when problem arises in Trados.

But thank you for taking the time to reply.

SDLTM Repair Sep 6, 2014

There's a free App on SDL OpenExchange called "SDLTM Repair" that has the purpose of repairing corrupt TMs. It doesn't guarantee any results, but you might want to give it a try.
Good luck!

Didn't work Sep 6, 2014

Hi Lorenzo,

I had tried that before I made this post and it didn't correct the problems.
At launch it gave me an error message, about a missing file error or something.

Thanks anyways for taking the time to reply.
