and from what XV Version shows me, it's just a plain DOC file, pretranslated etc.

Either I'll push some iron and polish up my rusty Transit experience. Or some good soul explains to me again (been done before, but I lost the URL) how to move the stuff to Trados and back.

receive / send Oct 18, 2006

You "receive" (an external project) in the the Transit menu which opens after running the program; work on it; and "send" it when it is done.

I dont have a problem with using Transit Oct 18, 2006

... I mean, I have an XV version and I have translated cca 50000 words with Transit - which is not a lot, but enough to learn how to pull the ropes.

I just feel rusty about it and - to repeat the question - I would prefer to convert the contents of PXF (or ENG and SLV files in the projects) into a bilingual TMX, use trados and then push the new TMX back into transit.

The alternative - as I wrote - would/will be to refresh my experience ("...what's the key combination for get to next untranslated? Alt NUM+? Oops...") From this perspective it's like being forced to work with a foreign language keyboard. Have you tried it? I can tell you from my own experience (Flamish for instance, with no English signs on key caps) that you go absolutely gaga. But it's good for steeling your nerves.

So probably I'll do it in Transit anyhow.

I misunderstood, sorry Oct 18, 2006

AFAIK, there is some software for working on Transit projects in something else (such as Trados) - I believe this particular issue was discussed on this forum several times. I cannot help you much in this respcet since my procedue is the opposite - I prefer working in Transit on Trados files.

Maybe I can help Oct 18, 2006

Hi Vito,

I process Transit projects in Deja Vu X from time to time and DVX is able to export the segments into a Word table that you could process with Trados. If you think that this would be of any help, I can do this for you. I would need the pxf for that. Just contact me privately through my profile page.

Cheers,
Wolfgang
