Hi All,
a client has sent a project to be translated in TagEditor for which he provides a set of filters for InDesign, Java, etc, for those translators using Trados 6.5 or under.
Since I use SDL Trados (version 7.5 ), I should not use the filters. Am I right?

Translate a short piece and send it back (in whatever form they expect deliveries) to see if THEY can handle your output.

You probably are.

Still: the InDesign files should have a .inx extension (interchange format) if TagEditor is to read them at all. Conversion to INX is internal (or by plug in) to InDesign, not TE.
The Java should have .properties. If they're sth like .language_properties_it you may need to simplify that extension (save as, and fill in the full name TE should handle these without any glitches.

Your FileFormats.pdf will help you too.
