Hi everyone,

I have downloaded a Transit 3.0 PE version from the site but I find it extremely confusing to work with.

The Tutorial and User's Manual (Adobe files) are also too confusing for me so I wonder now (after looking for some simpler explanation at would it be possible to convert a document I received into a .RTF file and than translate it in SDLX or Trados and when done, convert it back to Transit and send it back to client.

I'm used to work with SDLX and Trados and Transit seems to me too messy, so I wonder - would it be possible to just make an RTF file and to continue working on the document in SDLX and, when finished, convert it back to Transit?

Thanks in advance.
