I get a CAP file and some CWU files from a client.

Can two people work on that cwu file (not necessarily at the same time)?
Can person A work on the 1st half of the file and person B on the 2nd half, or can person B proofread the whole file translated by person A?

How can person B proofread what A has done?
If person B imports the CWU file, it will still be the original one (empty) from the client, isn't it?

Or, when B opens the file after A has finished, will the translated parts be in the server?
Or, does A have to export the translations into TMX, and B has to import those TMX format translations?

Sorry for the long series of questions!-

I don't think there is a way of sharing a CWU file that you have received from a client.

If two translators are sharing the translation task the file has to be split into two seperate documents (CWU), and assigned to the two different translators.

If you want translator B to proofread you will have to deliver to the client and the client will then have to assign the proofreading task to translator B.
