This is not exactly my setup, but assuming I am a translator editing TTX files with Trados/TagEditor on a PC, if I send them to a reviewer who is using Wordfast on a Mac, can s/he edit the files and send them back to me in the same TTX format ?

Thanks in advance,

No, unfortunately you cannot Apr 3, 2006

What you could do however, is convert your files to rtf keeping all the tags in a protected way and then send these to the reviewer.

Have a look at:

You can use PlusToyz for this purpose.
(http://www.geocities.com/avvysotsky/PlusToyz.zip , http://groups.yahoo.com/group/wordfast/files/ )
It does exactly this job: TTX file is converted to segmented Word document, with all tags preserved. Then the reviewed file can be converted back to TTX. Note that using tag protection feature in Wordfast is a must, otherwise tags can be easily corrupted in Word.
