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.

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?
