I am trying to import a Trados TM into DV3, but I receive this
I have imported dozens of Trados TMs previously, all without any
The language codes are set correctly, the ".txt" extension is there,
I have no idea what the reason and the remedy may be.

Any ideas?

Thank you,
Csaba Ban

I have no idea either, but Oct 14, 2004

if you have a registered version you may ask

This error seems to be rare because I could find inout neither on nor in the DV3 help doc.

Thank you, Harry.
I have already searched their knowledge database and the yahoo newsgroup. Actually, I have also posted my query there, and also sent it to the support team.
I just wanted to know if someone here have encountered the same problem before.

How about trying import to DVX? Oct 15, 2004

I wonder if you stayed with DejaVu 3 or if you also have DVX. It seems to me that DVX has improved a lot since its launch last year and it may cope with the import. Then you may try to export the DVX database to DejaVu 3. Or if you have Trados try to save the file in TMX format and see if it can be imported into DV.

My 2 cents.
