I know there may already be some other threads or information out there on translating in Wordfast with Trados TMs, but I can't seem to find the info I need. If someone could give me a quick rundown on what to do in this situation, or attach a link to a helpful thread or webpage, I'd appreciate it very much. I just started using Wordfast to create my own TMs, and this is the first time an agency has provided me with their own.
Thanks for the help!
You need a TMX to be able to use it in Wordfast. The agency probably sent you a txt-file or a complete TM (TMX). The only thing you can do in that case is to ask the agency to send you an export TMX file (1.4) or find someone with Trados to do that for you. You can also use a program called Olifant if you have the txt-file which will convert the file to a wordfast TM.
