I am trying to export a WF memory to TMX format in WF Pro. I am in the box for 'Export Local TM' and have selected the TM I want to export, and the format (TMX). The next line in this box requests a file name, but there isn't one yet because I haven't done the export. It seems that WFPro will not export without this file. Do I just create an empty file, for instance in Notepad? I don't understand the logic here.

The logic is simple Nov 28, 2012

It’s simple. You must type in a name, and a file with the name will be created.

Still cannot export Nov 28, 2012

Hmm, I tried typing in a new file name, with and without the .tmx extension, and it still does not export. I do get an error message that there are problems in two TUs. However when I try the 'Edit TM' box nothing opens up.

The conversion process opens up, but just hangs there - the progress information popup is just stuck and shows no progress.

TMX WFP or Olifant Nov 28, 2012

Dear Alice,

To export a Translation Memory from WFP:

- Make sure that all your translated segments are committed to the TM by pressing Alt+End; now all the segments should appear in Violet (colour) or by cleaning-up the TXML file updating the TM.
- Go to Translation Memory (menu) > New/Select TM
- Click on Export (button)
- Form the *Local TM* dropdown menu, select the TM you want to export.
- From the dropdown menu *Export Type*, select *TMX Format*
- Browse to select the preferred location and type a name.


Otherwise, you can use Okapi Olifant:

- File > Open to select the WF TM
- File menu > Save as > TMX.
