I use Trados 2009. I have been trying to align, export and import a file pair to my TM to no avail. I have aligned two .doc documents, I have saved the project, I have exported the pair in TMX format, I open up my TM, I import the file pair, and then nothing happens.
I get the following:
Read: 0 Imported: 0 Error: 0 Done
Recomputing Fuzzy Index Statistics.... Done

Then I can only click "close" and I get back to the page with my TM.

I can't seem to get the pair to import, but there doesn't seem to be any error, either...

What am I doing wrong?

Check your threshold value for the export Jan 16, 2015

Based on the fact that you use Studio 2009, I assume that you have done he alignment with the stand-alone program WinAlign.

Once the alignment was done, what did you do in the Editor of WinAlign. Did you manually check and confirm the segments or not? If you did not, what threshold value did you choose for the export. Depending on what you chose, the export TMX might contain only a few segments or even none.

You may also have a look into your TMX file (it can be opened in any text editor or even in Word) to see what it contains.

However the message "Read: 0" indicates that your export file is completely empty and this is probably due to your export settings in WinAlign. Check those.
