Hello everybody!

I am a beginner with Trados. I got a doc-file to translate (no problem) and a txt-file with an rtf-heading as a reference. What can I do to clean it up or to use as a TM?

Any ideas?

I'm no specialist with computers, so if there's information missing, don't hesitate to ask.

Thanks in advance!

what do you mean by rtf-heading? Dec 7, 2007

I assume you mean an RTF- extension (file name is xxxxx.rtf).

You should be able to open it with Tag Editor (part of your Trados installation) en clean it up the ordinary way using Clean-Up in Workbench.
Choose: Update TM and voilá!

Hope this helps, good luck!

File - Import Dec 7, 2007

Hi Janina,
Looks like a TM export: create an empty TM and import the file.

@Margreet:
Trados export files have an RTF preamble.

Best, Ralf

Thanks a lot! Dec 7, 2007

Hello Ralf and Margreet,

thanks for your quick responses. Sorry for the misundertanding. Of course I wanted to say rtf-preamble.

Thanks a lot, Ralf, for your great help!

Regards
