Hello everybody,
My client, who uses SDL Trados, supplied me with a .txt file but I could not use it as a TM either for WF classic or Wordfast Pro. Error message received reads: (FileLocationName) is not a Wordfast TM! Can you help me understand why and how to solve this problem?
Thanks!

WF .txt files are not the same as Trados .txt files. Just ask your customer to send you a .tmx export of their TM, then you can use it in WF.

Older version of WF Feb 24, 2011

I had the same problem using the newest version of WF Classic.

I tried using the Trados .txt file with an older version of WF (5.50 h2) and it worked.
