I had a problem importing a Trados TMX the other day and was quite frustrated as well. In the end, I imported it with WFP3. If you have a WFP license, you can download, install and license both WFP3 and WFP4 on the same computer.
WFP3 indicates what the problem was: several invalid XML characters that usually start with .
I opened the TMX with a plain text editor and replaced those characters with what they should represent (usually apostrophes, quotes, hypens or dashes).
I was then able to import into WFP3 and 4.
I submitted development tickets to fix this issue so that these TUs are automatically fixed (if possible) or they are ignored and the TU is skipped.
Hope this helps, kind regards,
I remember from 15 years ago when Microsoft introduced non standard code into htm-code so Netscape would not be able to display the page correctly. Perhaps Trados has taken up this tradition?
