Hello,
I am using Trados 7 and would like to send to my client the translation memory I created for his job. Problem: while Trados7 User's manual (and other posts on this forum) state that any TM comprises 5 files (*.iix *.mdf *.mtf *. mwf *.tmw) I have only 4 files on my computer (no *.mwf file). If I try to create a new TM, the result is the same: only 4 files are created. Anybody familiar with this? Thank you for your help.

If there are only 4 files Sep 2, 2005

then you should just send those 4 files.

I am not yet familiar with Trados 7 (haven't installed it yet), but perhaps this version only uses 4 files to create a TM.

You could try to copy these four files to another folder and open the TM from there. If it works, it will work for your client too.

Thank you for the good idea, however Sep 3, 2005

Thank you very much for the idea. I can open the TM like you said. However, I wonder how I can explain to my client that information in the manual is "not always true", that any TM is composed of 4 files and not 5..

Why not send them an export file of your memory? Sep 3, 2005

That will do nicely Sep 4, 2005

Thank you very much for your input.

It works nicely that way, and with your help I have learnt something about TRADOS today.(I have never used the Export function before.)
