I have created a new Studio TM for my project and have DOCX files with source and target in two columns that I want to create a Studio TM of. How can I do that?

You can see how the file layout is here (two columns but also a lot of tags and a heading etc.):

Probably there are dozens of different/better methods, but I would:

1) Copy the 2 columns in Excel;
2) Save the file as tab delimited CSV;
3) Import the CSV in Xbench;
4) Export as TMX;
5) Import the TMX in the Studio TM you created.

that's nice and a kind of standard procedure.

though

If I knew the name of source and target languages, I could reduce the above steps in 2.

1) select an Excel file using converter (then exported as an TMX file)
2) import into Trados


for instance..
"en-US"
"ZH-CN"
"ko-KR"
"JA"...
