Hello,

I want to open wordfast TM's in Across, and through these forums I learned I can export the txt file into tmx format and thus open it in Across, but, I cannot find how to export it?

I even read the wordfast user's manual and It clearly says "in wordfast, click the export button..." But I can't find the export button!

Any help?

The version of wordfast is 5.53q. I'm using it in demo mode, is this perhaps the reason why I can't?

With your TM activated (even with an empty MS Word doc), just open the TM editor, then Tools, Special Filters, and Export as TMX.

Nothing else,

Regards,

Adrien

I am in the process of moving from Wordfast to OmegaT, so this information has been a god-send. It doesn't happen totally smoothly - I need to do a bit of editing of the exported tmx files for OmegaT to accept them - but this has helped me enormously.
A million thanks.
