Hi all,

I have an agency that wants me to send the clean file and the TMX file of the Trados project and not the SDLTMX.

Now, I‘m still quite new to Trados and I‘m not sure how to get the TMX file for the agency. So far, I never paid much attention to the different file types that Trados generates.

How can I get the translation memory in TMX format?

Apologies if this sounds like a silly question.

Thank in advance.

Best regards

Annett

Export May 14

Hi Annett,

From your project, go to project settings, all language pairs. In the TM list find the TM you need to send, highlight it and click the Export button above, to the right. In the dialog box, choose a name for your export and the place where to save it (remember it). You will get the TMX file.

Filter out the specific project May 14

It is a little difficult to explain in the forum, but if you have other projects in your TM, you should filter off the segments used for that client or that project, and only send the TMX for that.

One way to do it is to use the options to filter segments used after a specified date and time, which would be the time you started on that project, or early that morning - I use 00:01 hours on that date, if it was the first project I worked on that day.

Otherwise you risk sending them data from other clients which may or may not be confidential.
If you have only used the TM for one project, don't worry, but it is useful to be able to filter off a single project and make an export without sending them your entire TM!

Instead of filtering,... May 14

...like Christine Andersen said, you could remove all TMs from the project. Create a new one. Update it with the corresponding files. And export that TM, using Ekaterina Kroumova or Stepan Konev methods.
