I have finally decided to switch to Trados after happily using Metatexis for over 2 years, because so many people requested Trados. I've purchased the SDL Trados Studio 2009, and I don't yet know a thing about it, but I would like to export my Metatexis translation database as something that can be imported into Trados.

If there is no way to do this in Metatexis Lite, can somebody think of a workaround? I wouldn't like to have to pay for Metatexis Pro just to be able to export a file and then never use the program again.

Hi

MetaTexis Lite is a free version, and as a free version it doesn't include some of the functions. In order to be able to export your TM you'll need at least the PRO version:

I actually got a private message very quickly, saying that I should use the Yahoo MetaTexis group instead, because I wouldn't get a reply here any time soon

The solution for me was to install the trial of a new Pro version of MetaTexis and export the TM.
