I´m having a hard time starting a translation as the TM seems to be a mess. I originally had a tmw TM from the client and since I only work in Wordfast, I had my colleague export it into tmx. This was a problem because when opening this TM there was an error message about a matrix problem.

I solved this problem based on advice on this forum and my colleague was able to reorganize the TM in Workbench and export it into tmx. However, neither of the TMs work. When I try to open a segment of the text file with Wordfast, it says that the TM "was perhaps processed with an unlicensed version..." and that I should reorganize it. When I do so, the problem remains. I only have a free trial Wordfast because I´m new to freelancing and still saving up for the licence.

Is there anyone able to help me? I need to figure out if the problem is on my side or the client´s side. Could maybe someone with a valid licence try the TM to make sure it´s not (or it is) a problem of my Wordfast?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Maybe the TM is too big for your trial version? As far as I know, the number of segments to be processed by trial versions is limited (I think about 500 TUs).

Christel, thank you! This is definitely the problem. Thanks for pointing this out, I haven´t thought of this.
