The Allegro to PADS translator requires scripts to be run on the board in Allegro and the resulting files imported into PADS along with the .brd file. The translator will not work with the .brd file alone.
The instructions for creating the files in Allegro can be found by clicking on the Help button in the Allegro translator dialog box.
thanks for your answer!
So this clears to fact of having to ask external help to accomplish the task at Allegro side.
