Hi,

I want to merge TM's (txt) from WFP 3.

I tried to install WFC to merge the TMs but I am having problem with the installation under Word 2002.

I tried to merge with WFP 3, but I am not sure how to do it (TM Servers, TM content, etc.). I don't want to "kill" my TMs.

I tried with WF Anywhere, but the icons are grey and I don't know how to do it.

I am trying with Olifant, but Olifant has Wordfast Import Options that I don't know how to use. Should I mark ONLY "Merge entries"? And how to delete duplicate entries?

Thank you in advance.

Regards

Text editor? Aug 29, 2016

Not really an answer, but Wordfast TMs are basically just plain text. Why not simply open them in a good text editor and copy and paste strings from one to the other (excluding the header)?

Hi Esperantisto,

1. Something can go wrong.

2. Olifant can see what is wrong with the TM's

3. I don't know if Olifant can do this, but I would like to delete the duplicate entries.

How to begin? Aug 29, 2016

Hi Esperantisto,

Your answer helped me, but I don't know how to begin:

"I am trying with Olifant, but Olifant has Wordfast Import Options that I don't know how to use. Should I mark ONLY "Merge entries"?"

Defaults Aug 29, 2016

When using Olifant to merge TMs (mainly TMX files actually), I just accept the default settings that the program offers.
