File Import Settings

TTX (Trados TagEditor)

TTX is a Trados bilingual file format. Memsource will only import those segments from a TTX file that have been pre-segmented in Trados.

Importing TTX files into a Memsource project is not recommended. These formats are proprietary and are best translated by SDL software. There may be minor or even major incompatibilities when translating Trados bilingual files in non-Trados software.

Features of Memsource such as pseudo-translation checks are also lost when translating TTX files.

If there is a trados.ini file attached, ensure it is in the same directory as the TTX file during pre-segmentation.

File Types

  • .TTX

Import Options

Source and target language codes of the TTX file must match exactly with the language codes the project. If the TTTX file has en-US as a target language, English-United States must be selected for the project target language and not English. If not exact, Trados Studio may not process the file correctly.

  • Save Confirmed Segments to TM on import

    Segments imported as Confirmed are saved to the project translation memory in Write mode.
