Import SDL Trados Studio package

memoQ can import SDL Studio packages (*.sdlppx). A project manager can use Trados Studio to hand off work in these files to translators. When a project manager hands off a project from Trados, a translator can do the translation in memoQ.

SDLPPX files are compressed files that contain an XML file describing the project, the documents for translation in SDLXLIFF format, the translation memories and term base.

From an SDL Studio package, you can create a local project as well as an online project.

To import an SDL Studio package in an online project: You need the project manager edition of memoQ. You also need a memoQ TMS, and you must be member of the Project managers or the Administrators group on the memoQ TMS.

How to get here

What can you do?

Need to work with translation quality assessment feedback in the Studio package? memoQ can import TQA feedback in the form of Linguistic Quality Assurance (LQA) warnings. To make this work, you need to set up the SDLXLIFF filter for it. On the page where you choose to import translation memories or term bases, click Configure the SDLXLIFF filter. The Document import settings window opens, with the SDLXLIFF options. Click the Translation quality assessment tab, and tell memoQ to import the TQA changes as LQA ranges.

When you finish

To import the package, and open the project in Project home or in memoQ online project: On the last page of the wizard, click Finish.

To return to the Dashboard, and not import the package: On any of the pages, click Cancel.

When translation is ready: Export return package

When the translation is finished, you need to export a return package.

If you created a local project:

  1. Open the project that you imported from the SDL Studio package.

  2. In Project home, choose Translations.

  3. Select any of the documents.

  4. On the Documents ribbon, click Export. Or, click the down arrow below the Export icon. From the menu, choose Export (Stored path). memoQ exports the SDL return package (an SDLRPX file).

    No TMs or TBs in return packages: SDLRPX packages only contain the translated files. If you receive an SDLRPX package for reviewing, ask your customer to create an SDLPPX package instead, so that you can use the project's resources.

    To export individual SDLXLIFF files: Select the documents you want to export. On the Documents ribbon, click the down arrow below the Export icon. From the menu, choose Export (Choose Path).

  5. Choose a folder and a name for the return package.

If you work with an online project:

  1. Open the online project in memoQ online project. Choose Translations.
  2. Select any of the documents. Right-click the selection. In the menu, click Export, then click Export (Stored path).
  3. Choose a folder and a name for the return package.

To send the package: Open the folder where you saved the delivery package. Attach the package file to an e-mail, and send it to your client.
