Hello,

I recently had do disinstall Trados (an old version with dongle) because it wasn't possible to use it with a subtitling software that also needs a dongle. So instead I bought a license for wordfast, my clients said they had absolutely no problems with me working in WF instead of in TWB.
OK, but now a client sent me a TWB tm that I need to use.

Could somebody explain to me how I import this TWB tm into wordfast? the files are .iix, .mdf, .mtf, .mwf, .tmw

thanks in advance!

no workaround afaik Jul 2, 2008

SDL made the trados memory incompatible with other formats and impossible to open with text editors on purpose afaik.

Of course you can still ask a forum member (e.g. me) to open it with trados and export it into tmx or txt for you.

Maybe xbench can handle these things? I don't have xbench so I have no idea.
