Hi all,

I've just found out that some files we received from a client are in Paradox database format.

The client tells us to do the translation in DB Commander. I've learnt by Hynek and Vito (http://www.proz.com/topic/51988) that I can export the text of the database with DBC, translate it with Trados or similar, and re-import it again using DBC.

Is this the best way to do it, or do you know of any CAT tool that supports the Paradox files natively?

Thanks a lot in advance,

Jan

you will need something going from and into Paradox files. Microsoft Access can read them. but I doubt very much that it creates them as well...
