I am going to audit some translations but the problem is that they are in ttx format. Since it is my first time to use Trados on an actual project, I would like to know if I need to configure anything once I opened Trados.

Can anyone give me a step-by-step guide on how to open ttx files using Trados?

Thanks so much for your help.

Dear Switchboard,

The "Translator's Workbench User Guide" is an excellent point to start. It was installed on your computer with together with the software, you can find it unter Trados - Documentation. There even is a seperate chapter about working with TagEditor.

Kind regards,
Erik

More information Jul 26, 2008

Just for information:
*.ttx file is in an XML format.
You still edit *.ttx files by using MS Word or Notepade if you have no copy of Trados on your PC.
Only beware to safe in original format. Never change formats, tags during your save steps.
This method is good for minor change.

Regards,
Soonthon L.

Let's make it simple Jul 26, 2008

1. Start TagEditor program
2. Open the ttx file from the menu

You think I'm being too polite? Or the other way round?
