Yes - via S-Tagger Oct 5, 2004

Hi Tamara,
T6.5 supports Interleaf - why don't you have a look at the File Formats Reference Guide? Check under Start - Programs - Trados 6.5 - Documentation, or download it from TranslationZone.

HTH, Ralf

Another question please Oct 6, 2004

Do I need to have Interleaf to be able to work on an Interleaf file with Trados?

Thank you

Not necessarily, but I'm not 100% sure Oct 6, 2004

Hi again,

Looking at the workflow described in the File Formats Reference Guide...


How the S-Taggers Work
The S-Taggers are conversion utilities that convert FrameMaker MIF files and Interleaf IASCII files into STF, a tagged text format that is compatible with Translator’s Workbench and other TRADOS tools. You can translate STF files using TagEditor or Microsoft Word. Version 5.6 of the S-Taggers allows you to convert MIF and IASCII files directly to TRADOStag format.

(...)

TRADOS S-Tagger for Interleaf supports IASCII and catalog files saved from Interleaf 5.2 or later. This release supports Interleaf 7, included as part of the QuickSilver XML application suite.

(...)

Translation Workflow
(...)
3 Save your FrameMaker files as MIF or your Interleaf files as IASCII.



This would indicate that you could ask your client to save the files as IASCII (better text the export/import routine before going into practice).

But I'm sure someone will come up with some actual experience.

Best regards,
Ralf

Thanks again Ralf. I will ask the client to do this, if there is no other solution.

It depends, if your client does have Trados or not Oct 6, 2004

If your client does not have Trados, then you will need to ask him to save the files as IASCII, as Ralf allready described.
If your client does have Trados, you can either get IASCII or tagged RTF from him.
This works just fine.
One of my clients has Trados and works with Interleaf/Quicksilver. He delivers tagged RTF, and this works without any problems. So I do not see, why this shouldn't work, if you would filter RTF using S-Tagger.
In any case, the client will need to adapt the IL file after the translation in the same way, as it is necessary with any DTP.

Regards
Jerzy
