Hi all!!

I am working with Trados 6.5 in a project and my customer gave me a glossary which, in fact, contains sentences rather than glossaries. My question is whether it's possible to create a translation memory from this file. I am checking Trados guide but I dont seem to get any help...

Thanks in advance for your responses!

Regards,

Edu.

There is a csv converter from www.maxprograms.com, it is free, and you can use it to create a TMX file.

Before you import the TMX file into Workbench, I guess you'll have to convert the TMX file from UTF-8 to Unicode (UTF-16), because my experience shows that Workbench somehow does not like TMX files encoded in UTF-8.
