Hi everybody,

I have Office 2010 and have just downloaded the new, trial version Metatexis.

Hi everybody,

I'm following the video tutorial on metatexis.com, but the problem is that Metatexis doesn't recognize any of these extensions, and I can't seem to find a way to attach the client's TM.

I would really appreciate a step-by-step instruction how to take those 5 files and turn them into a Metatexis TM. TIA.

2 simple steps Oct 27, 2011

1) You need to convert the Trados TM to the exchange format, i.e. TMX. Open your TM in Trados Workbench and export it to .TMX.

2) Create a new empty Metatexis TM and import the TMX file into it.

HTH,
Natalia

no access to Trados Oct 27, 2011

Hi Natalie,

My mistake for not articulating my problem correctly. I don't have Trados, so is there another way to convert it to TMX format?
