Dear all,

I've been asked to work on a very short document as a test for an agency that uses TRADOS and has also sent an excel file that looks like what would be a TM; terms in the source language in the first column, followed by target terms in different languages in subsequent columns. Is there any way I could use this file just like that as a TM in Wordfast? Or is it just a reference document for me to create my own TM? By the way, this agency knows I use Wordfast. Any comments and suggestions are welcome.
Thanks in advance.

Terms or segments? Jun 19, 2005

Your description of the excel file ("terms in different languages in sugsequent columns") sounds more like a glossary than a TM to me.

I'd try exporting the relevant columns into a txt-file (separated by tabs). Then you could import the resulting file as your active glossary in Wordfast, using term recognition.

Regards from Sweden
Antje

Yes, segments. Jun 19, 2005

Thanks, Antje, and sorry for the mistake; it is "segments" what I have in the file. I'll give it a try using them to create a new TM, then. Guess that's what they're sending them for.
Best regards.
