ENLASO OLIFANT Feb 14, 2008

You need to convert it using for example Enlaso Olifant - it is free software so try to find it in the Internet.

I hope it will work.

Greetings

advise from Wordfast Feb 14, 2008

I had this problem and wrote to Wordfast and this is what they said, hope it helps:

I believe the user manual explains this. To export your TM to TMX, select the TM in Wordfast or create a new one. Open the TM Editor by clicking its icon on the Wordfast toolbar. Click Tools in the top right corner. Select "Export as TMX" among Special Filters and click OK. Wordfast will create the TM file for you. Your client will be able to import the TMX file in Trados.

Leanne

Thank you for your reply, Ania.

We downloaded Enlaso Olifant but it requires .NET Framework version 1.1.4322 to install.

We have .NET Framework 2.0 and 3.0 but Olifant still doesn't work...

Okapi Olifant Feb 15, 2008

Download and try to install Okapi Olifant. As far as I understand Enlaso Olifant is no longer updated but Okapi Olifant is. I have installed both.
The url is: http://okapi.sourceforge.net
