Hello. an outsourcer has offered me to do a technical translation. He would provide the TM that I should update while translating, only that the TM is, among others, a TMW file. I don't have Trados, and Wordfast cannot open it..I also know that the +tools can convert files, but since I can't open the file, it does not work too.Any suggestions? Thankyou in advance

Hi,

You should ask your client to export the TM to TMX format. Wordfast can import TMX files.

Good luck,
Dan

Dear Milan,

This is not an example but a screenshot.
XBench cannot open Trados TMW files, so your example is useless.

Rgds,
