Hi All,

This may have been answered before, but I cannot find the posting.

I am using Trados 7.0.0.615 and need to export a translation memory to a 6.0 user. This is normally not a problem.

The issue I have this time is that I have used a number of the standard fields in Project and Filter Settings (e.g., Text Field, Project Number, Product, Job # etc.) and now need to be able to export those fields along with the source/target languages.

The problem is that these standard fields are not exported along with the languages. What could I be doing wrong? Surely there must be a way to do this, no?

Thank you in advance.

Christian

Are you sure the problem lies with the export?

I would imagine that the 6.0 user importing your file is leaving the "New fields" option set to its default ("Ignore"). If they change this to "Add to setup", any custom fields should be imported with their corresponding source and target segments.

HTH,
Benjamin

Hi Benjamin,

Thanks so much for your suggestion. No, I doubt that very much. I should have mentioned that the text file (the export file) contains none of the fields I created.

Best,
Christian

save the project and the filter settings (see the options in the dialog windows in menu Project and filter settings) and send it with the files.

He has to open each of then direct from the settings menu (register ->Project and register -> filter).

It is very easy and clear to see
