Dear All,



I would like to know how to convert .hhc and .hhk files into rtf files, so I can use Trados to translate them.



Best

HHC and HHK files Jul 3, 2002

Li-Chuan,

there is no need to convert the files. Use the Tag Editor, it will take care of this one, by creating a TTX file, when translating. Afterwards just clean up the TTX files and you have your translated HHC and HHK files.





HTH

ITP FilterPack Jul 3, 2002

Or use ITP FilterPack to convert. I always duplicate the extension (e.g., rename index.hhc to index.hhc.hhc or indexhhc.hhc) because files often have the same \"first name\" and are distinguished only by the hhc or hhk extension. FilterPack does strip the (last) extension and replaces it with .rtf, so it\'s important to make sure you know which file was the hhc, and which was the hhk.



Set FilterPack to \"All Files\" so you can manually choose the hhc and hhk files to convert.



ITP FilterPack is available, no charge, under the following URL:

Uwe is, of course, correct, and you can also use TagEditor. However, I did have some problems with TE in Trados FL 3.0; it kept crashing (apparently a known issue with WinME on some systems, and one that Trados was never able to reproduce to such an extent that they could fix it). That problem was solved by switching to FL 5.5.



But I think it\'s always good to have another option, so you might want to keep FilterPack in mind.
