you can do this Aug 30, 2009

1. Export the Trados TM to a .txt file.
2. Open the .txt file using Microsoft Word (or copy and paste).
3. Replace the Trados Tags with Wordfast Tags. (Press Ctrl+H to do the Search and Replace).
4. Save the file in .txt format and open it as TM in WordFast.

TMX file format Aug 30, 2009

I think the better sollution is to export the translation memory into tmx file by going in translator's workbench and choosing File > Export. Then open WORD and click on the WORDFAST icon twice. Select Select TM on the TM tab. Select All Files under Files of type. Select the TMX file and select OK. And you're done!
