Can I import a TM from Trados into Wordfast and how ? Do I just rename the TM I receive: .txt ?

Thanks
Ode

Yes Mar 9, 2011

In theory, TMX files can be opened automatically by Wf. In practice, it is not always automatic, or simple, or even possible.
One may have to use PlusTools, or other tools (Olifant, etc.) to nudge Wf.
I seem to remember more details in the Wf manual (which was updated recently).

Open it without renaming it Mar 9, 2011

Hi Ode,

In WFC you don't have to do anything else than opening the XML TM. WFC will convert the XML TM to a Wordfast TXT TM.

Regards,
Gerard

I received an mdb and it converted OK through name change.
Thank you both
