Follow the process description for translating MIF files Sep 4, 2007

Sorry, but even beginners should be precise...
What do you exactly have? Reviewed and changed mif files or billingual files or what?
If you need help, please describe your needs as precise as possible, giving the exact information what files do you have, what formats and what is your task and so on.
The process of translating MIF files is described very detailed in File Format Reference Guide, a document available with each copy of SDL Trados. You can acess it in SDL Trados program group, section Documentation.

Did you previously translate the mif files? Do you have any rtf files with translation? There are to many unanswered questions to give you a better hint here.

Really beginner ! Sep 5, 2007

Dear Jerzy,

thanks a lot for your tips !
To your information:
I have translated mif files. I converted then to rtf, translated it with Trados and converted again to mif. Now I received these files reviewed and changed from customer as mif files. I just want to update my TM with the customer changes.
And the question is how. I have tried to import the mif file to the TM, but this mif extension is not valid.
Anyway I will follow your orientation. I have sometimes the feeling, there are too many infos. in the forum and everywhere and I loose myself !!!
Thanks again and nich day !
