Hi everyone,

A client sends me .mdb TMs (from SDLX tool) and I am unable to upgrade them in Studio 2014, I constantly have an error message saying "Parsing of XML parameter failed (ExportTMX)", so the corresponding .sdltm TMs are created but remain empty.

I do have Trados 2007 installed on my computer, but not SDLX.

A friend of mine was able to upgrade the .mdb TM on Studio 2011, and my client as well. I would like to be able to do it myself for the next projects, I have been looking for a solution for three weeks and could not find one.

I hope one of you will be able to help me.

Thank you very much,
