Hi,

This is probably a neverending story but nevertheless, as of early 2010, is there a way of importing a set of .iix, .mdf, .mtf, .mwf, .tmw files (appearing to be the new Trados format for TMs) into TMX or anything readable by either Wordfast or any (preferably free) conversion tool - without paying for Trados?

Old version of WF would do the trick Feb 5, 2010

Hola!

Former versions of WordFast (3.35x) allowed to open the native TRADOS TM format (tmw) as WF memory and then exporting it as TMX (1.1)


You can download a suitable version from www.wordfast.org


Please notice that the .iix, .mdf, .mtf, .mwf, .tmw .tmw files are not new; they have conformed the TRADOS TM file structure since I learned TRADOS (version 5.5 if I am not wrong)

Thanks for the tip. Feb 5, 2010

Does it mean I'd have to install an older version of MS Office than the one I'm currently using (2007)?

Wordfast can not open new TMW files Feb 17, 2010

WordFast (3.35x) was able open and convert Trados 5.5 tmw files, but there are changes in the TMW format, so it is not possible to open Trados 2007 tmw file with Wordfast.
