Split .ttx Files for TagEditor
Thread poster: jose_jovena
I'm new in this forum, and I hope that from now on, I can help and get helped from other translators.
As the topic subject reads, I'd like to know if there's any possible way to split .ttx files with TagEditor. I know SDLX has a function which does so, but I'd like to know if there's an easier way. Thank you very much for your support.

Hi, you can use PlusToyz to convert TTX to DOC, split this DOC into several DOC files and open these in TagEditor.

I have a huge ttx file to translate and I need to split it into several smaller files because my system cannot handle the nig ttx file.
I tried TTXpress and after installing it found nothing. I mean, how do I open it? Is it supposed to be a toolbar in Word? If so, where is it? I see nothing different and have no clue how to use this program which mysteriously installed itself somewhere without telling me where.
When I try to use Plustoyz I simply get the message:
"The macros in this project are disabled..."
and of course with no help at all on how to enable them.
I have been trying to split this monster file for a week and cannot do so, and I fear if I do not find a solution quickly, I will be in really big trouble. If someone can help, I would appreciate it.

I needed to split the ttx files, as I had to give the text to 4 different translators and I needed to make the analyse of the different pieces of it. I managed to do it thanks to Spiros' comment about disabling the protection of the tags and document: I exported the file into a .doc and use Find and Replace for deleting all the tag marks and get a document with the plain text. That way I could count with Word and find the segments where I had to split the tags by. And that way I made different ttx files out of a single one.
The best thing to do it is by selecting the piece of text (the one you want to turn into a single ttx) and cutting it, and then select the rest of the file, and with that selection made, paste the piece you cut on it.
Probably I didn't explain myself very clearly, but I hope it helps.
