Importing TM Analyses - Principles and Prerequisites

Top  Previous  Next

Trados 2007 (also MemoQ)

This is the easiest and most straightforward format to import since it is not modifiable through formatting options from within Trados or MemoQ.

TOM imports the Trados csv report file - one import for each language pair.
This function is available in the TM calculator itself only.
The match categories are fixed.


Trados Studio 2009 - 2014:

Trados Studio is more flexible in terms of match categories issued. The fundamental idea to understand here is that you need to know exactly what you are importing and that the imported format must match the TM format(s) you have defined in TOM. This in particular concerns the match categories that were introduced last by SDL:

- Crossfile repetitions

- Locked Segments

which are both optional or do not exist (in Studio 2009).

So with each TM format you define you need to declare whether the report contains any of this categories.

Please note  that TOM expects the set of fuzzy match categories always to be in the format



In the TM screen itself xml files are imported one by one for each language pair. However, you can import any number of xml files in one batch during project creation using the (SP Assistent).
 Important  A prerequisite for xml import is a valid file path to an xslt stylesheet file, (e.g. import_Trados2014_AllIncl.xslt ) provided with the TOM installation files and located in the \xslt folder, which is a sub-folder of the Documents folder defined in User Settings > Forms.
 Important  The Trados xml files (like Across) contain language codes that allow TOM to determine the language pair and create sub-projects automatically. For this feature to work it is necessary to fill in the language codes in the code list in User Settings > Sources > Languages.


Across reports

This program feature needs to be licensed separately with Jovosoft.

Across reports contain TM analyses for all language pairs in a project and cannot be imported one by one into the TM calculator window. To import them use the SP-Assistent importiert.
