Hello,

Can anyone help? I want to export a Transit memory into TMX, but can't find the function. As far as I can see from the documentation, it is possible to export a project (i.e. with source text, target translation etc.) but I only want to export the memory into TMX so that I can import it into Trados.

I found a very old link that Gillian had posted a long time ago, but the link is unfortunately dead. Can anyone help?

Thank you

Rob Roy

From the menu Project you can Import\Export TMX Jun 4, 2010

Hi Rob,

From the menu Project you can Import\Export TMX, these are the last tow functions at the end of the Project menu.

1- Open the project you want to export it's language pairs as TMX,
2- Chose Project | TMX Export,
3- From the next dialog browse to chose the place to save the exported TMX,
4- Give it the name you want,
5- Then export.

Thanks
ATT

I only want to export the TM, not the whole project Jun 4, 2010

Thanks for the quick reply, ATT, but I would like to find a way of exporting the Translation Memory alone, and not the whole project (with source and target documents).

Or is exporting the whole project the only way of exporting the TM?

Thanks for your efforts all the same, ATT!

Cheers

Rob Roy

The would be enough for your prupose Jun 4, 2010

Hi Rob,
The way i described is how to export the TMX as you want, not the project.

So, just follow the instructions and every thing will be ok.

Best regards
ATT

Just to be on the safe side, ATT Jun 4, 2010

If I understand you correctly, then in order to export a given TM I have to select (and export) a project that used that TM, right? The reason I ask is that in some projects I use more than one TM as reference material, but in this particular case I only want to export ONE memory. So I have to select a project that uses only that TM - have I got it right now?!

Thanks for your patience.

Cheers

nxt or xv? Jun 4, 2010

(1) First of all, the actual menus are different between nxt and xv.

(2) Unless you created reference extracts, there is nothing like a separate TM in Transit but only the source and target files (aka language pairs). So it is rather unclear what you mean by one TM. You can of course choose which language pairs you want to export to tmx.

Sorry for incomplete info, Antonin Jun 7, 2010

(1) I'm using Transit XV Smart, SP 26.

(2) I know that Transit structures its info differently from Trados, with language pairs etc. I had imported a Trados memory into Transit, and would like to export it (it is now significantly larger) back into Trados for a Trados project.

So the question is, can I select specific language pairs (representing my "memory") to export, or do I have to take the "Project" route as described by ATT?

Thanks for your trouble.

Yours

Rob Roy

see the image Jun 7, 2010

you get here by Project/TMX Export, "More" button

you choose individual files in the lower left-hand subwindow and set the resulting tmx file in the upper right-hand one.

In the old days, the TMX export from Transit could not be opened by Trados because it had to be edited in line 4, AFAIR - but this Trados bug may have been corrected in between.

You can also us the TMX vlidator freeware to check the TM file structure.
