Hi, ALL,

I have recently accepted a job from the clinet which requested use of Across. I usually work with a translator and edit his work after he finishes it.

We both install Across PE version (version 5) on both computers. The translator finished translating and save the project by using "Save All" command. He then sent me the saved CWU file to me in a hope that I may be able to edit his translation.

After I recieved it and opened it in my Across, I simply could not find any translation in it. I wonder where I went wrong and if this is the right way to do this.

The translator tried to export his translation memory to TMX and hoped to let me have his translation by sending me TMX file. Unfortunately, he could not export it in ExportManager of crossTank because he could not find any langugae pair to choose from during the process.

I will appreciate if any of you may solve my headache.

James Chan

or the translator:

1- go to projects,
2- in the left panel choose the project
3- Click on file, and then export project
4- the final result is a *.ara file

All transactions should be done via Across Server.
So translator should send his CRU (response unit) to the Across Server, and PM on Server should generate CWU (work unit) for you.

AAV is aboslutley correct here. Sending the package from one translator to another will not work.
