Hello

A translation company demanded that I export ISC file by using Trados plug-in into Indesign.
The company sent me four files.
How to export ISC file by using Trados plug-in into Indesign?
The available files sent from that company are
PDF file which I should refer to as a source file.
INDD file that is the Indesign file
ISC file that is the translation file
File of TagEditor

The ISC file is the translation file.
The company wants me to export the translation file of ISC into Indesign file of INDD which contains images that I should switch their places after exporting process because of the nature of the target language.

The company wants me to submit the Indesign file and a pdf.

What is "Trados plug-in"? Sorry for my ignorance.

Thanks

Please see the relevant Trados documentation on this topic - more precisely, check the File Formats Reference Guide, Chapter 6. It's in your Start menu and (if you have Trados 7) in:
C:\Program Files\TRADOS\T7\Doc\English\FileFormatsRef_en.pdf

I understand you do have Trados AND InDesign installed on your computer?

If you still have questions regarding the process after reading the Guide, let us know.

HTH,
Benjamin

I'd say you have a DTP job on your hands Jul 18, 2006

... and not a translation job. If I can assume some more, you have an ISC file, where the client wants the images swapped. If this is all, then:

You read the file in in InDesign, swap the images and reexport it in ISC format. No translation needed.

You say, they sent you TagEditor (exe?) file? Hm....

TRADOS plug-in is a InDesign extension to pack the INDD in such a way that it can be translated by TRADOS and returned in a consistent form. With CS2 version the plug-in is not necessary anymore if the latest TRADOS version is used. But then, I dont think you need any TRADOS or TRADOS plug-in anyhow...

regards

Vito

Hello

Dear Vito

Why they sent me TagEditor file?
What is the use of it? Why do I need it then or it has not value or no need?

Thanks
