I'm going to be getting a translation early this week that is done in PageMaker. Does anyone know if it's possible to export PageMaker files into Word or Text files to work with? Help!

With Trados a piece of cake Mar 13, 2004

Using Trados there is a so called "Story Collector for Pagemaker", which allows you to export the text from Pagemaker and translate it afterwards with Word (using FilterPack in between to create a rtf file from PM export). Very easy to use, processes all PM stories automatically.
Alternatively you can use SDLX (a free trial download fully working within 30 days is available), but then you have to save all stories manually AFAIK and are then not able to process them in Word.
