I have been sent a translation memory in text format for a translation I am doing.
"text" can be almost anything. Can you open that TM in a text editor (eg. Notepad) and post the first 4-5 lines?
I have imported the TM into Wordfast Pro and have selected the TM as Active. However the programme seems to be unable to connect to the TM, I am getting the message 'unable to connect to TM properly'. When I return to the TM list the Active box is unchecked.I'd be grateful for advice as I need to get this translation completed for Monday.
You'd first need to establish this is a Wordfast TM, or a TMX, which are the only TM formats supported by Wordfast Pro.
