I'm quite new to Trados, and a first-timer when it comes to Trados TagEditor.

I have a job I'm doing with Trados TagEditor, but I am going to be away from my workstation for a week (using friends' computer & a laptop).

Is there a way to work on the ttx's and translate them away from my Trados?
(and still manage to later submit the uncleaned ttx)?

For instance - can I temporarily work with a simple tag editor (editplus etc) or with notepad and later upload my work to my Trados environment again without losing any bilingual info?

Is there a safe way?
Is there an unsafe way (posiible but not recommended)?

Thanks in advance

Hi Ron Mar 20, 2007

FYI, I moved the thread to the Trados support forum.

MemoQ and/or TTXpress Mar 21, 2007

Easiest way: download the trial version of MemoQ from http://www.kilgray.com/kilgray/products/memoq/try?locale=en.

It will have full functionality for some days (30?) and will allow you to open, edit and store files in ttx format.

Alternatively, you can dowload the TTXpress template from: http://www.terminologymatters.com/ttxpress.html
and use it with your Word for converting from .ttx to .rtf files, translate them with the CAT of your choice (I use WordFast) and then converting them back to .ttx

Saludos

You could also very well just set Trados to copy source when no match is found in the TM, and translate the part of the document you're not done with using a new blank TM. You could then export that memory as text and take it with you wherever you go. This way, you would be working directly in the TM - just make sure you bring along any reference files, like PDFs, so you can have some context.

When you get back home, all you have to do is import the TM you've been working on into the existing TM for that project and use the Translate function of Workbench to implement all 100% matches. Only takes a minute!

However, I agree that other solutions proposed here may be less complicated. But in case you have no other program available, this method works nicely still - I don't know anybody who doesn't have a basic text editor on their computer...
