probably this might seem like an easy question to many of you, but being a beginner here I have been struggling today to start using SDLXLite Edit that a translation agency has provided me with for a translation. Now they have gone home for the day, so I have nobody to ask about what to do with the terminology file they have sent me before.

The file is a .txt file but I don't manage to open it within the Edit program or the TermBase program and as I thought I was supposed to do that. However, as I still have not understood well how to use and apply everything I just feel very confused about it all.

Anyone who could help me out about how to open this file within the SDLX so I can see the terminology dictionary already made? As in the notepad version it's all very compact.

never received a .txt file Apr 24, 2006

Hi Katarina,

I am quite new to SDLXLite myself, so maybe my answer does not help, but maybe it does so here is the information I can give you:

The agency I work with that uses SDLX always sends me three types of files:

- the "Edit" files, in which I type the translation

- files with the ending .mdb
these are the translation memories

- files with the ending .tdb
these are the glossaries in Termbase format

I have never received a .txt file to work with so far.

Good luck!
