Have used Trados memories before no probs. Now cannot load the memory. Wf tells me to install PlusTools. PlusTools is installed. (Plus, I don't know how to use PlusTools.) What can I do?

Has the Trados memory been converted to TMX format beforehand?

You don't mention what version of WF you are using.

Heather, I don't have any experience with WF4, I have some vague memory of reading somewhere that older versions of trados txt memories were directly compatible with older versions of WF ... but I'm not really sure about it. Maybe some of the more senior WF users will have some ideas.

Anyhow, I think that the best solution is probably to just ask whoever ever sent you the trados .txt to convert it to .tmx, and then import into WF that way. With current versions of WF, the trados .txt format is not directly compatible with WF .txt format.

Thank you! Apr 13, 2010

Thanks, Lori. I am considering just downloading a demo version of Trados...and damn the torpedos.
