Can anyone please help with a somewhat urgent request?

I have duplicated this request for the SDL Trados forum as I was told I would be more likely to get an instant answer here

I was sent a file in xlf format which I duly translated in Studio 2009. I was asked to return a xlf file, which I have done but the client says he cannot open it as he has Déjà Vu. He keeps insisting he needs it in xlf format, which is what it's in. Does anyone please have any ideas? Thank you.

Hi Lisa, Oct 4, 2012

I meant the Yahoo Groups mailing list, rather than here on Proz. That's where all the DejaVu people hang out...

Thanks. Trying the DV Yahoo Group. My Trados question has now been shifted to this DV forum. Have requested one gets deleted.

xlf or sdlxliff Oct 4, 2012

Hi Lisa,

I guess your client sent you an xlf (or xliff) file but you delivered a sdlxliff file. You should of course deliver it in xlf format (File> Save Target as).

Thanks Selcuk Oct 4, 2012

Problem solved. The odd thing is that Windows 7 Explorer was not showing my full file name and I was under the impression that I'd produced an .xlf I started again with the original in a separate folder and that did the trick.
