Hi everybody,

I am trying out MemoQ 4.5 and I just received a wps-file from a customer.
Neither MemoQ, nor the MS Office 2010 suite will read it.

Could you recommend free software that I can use to convert the wps so that I can work with it in MemoQ? I have found several free downloads but I don´t know what to choose.
I would like to return the file to the customer in wps format of course...

What would be the easiest workflow?

Many thanks in advance!

Older versions of Office should do Nov 12, 2010

In my Office XP I see the option to open Microsoft Works 2000 files (which I think is what you have there). I will be happy to help convert the file from/to a Microsoft Word format you can add to MemoQ. Just email me via my profile!

Just open it in word and save as doc or better yet - docx.
