There must be a simple command in Memo! to "save" a file (i.e. exporting) to Word. Simply to deliver the file without any codes or TM.

How is this done?

Export (dialog) May 12, 2014

If you have imported a Word file into memoQ, you simply select the file to be exported and use the "Export (dialog)" link in the Translations pane of your project. I hope this helps!

It if were only that simple.

I would think so, but it is only saving it with the "sdlxliff" extension, i.e. it can't be opened as a word file. Somehow I don't see the option of how to save it as a .doc. or .docx file.

OK, so you got a SDLXLIFF file for translation. This is a file made with SDL Studio, and to produce the Word file with the original format you also need SDL Studio, I'm afraid...

If the customer expects you to have SDL Studio (i.e. if you do not have it but told the customer that you do, which is a mistake as proven by today's situation), you will have to find some colleague who works in your same language pairs and who could save the Word file for you using Studio.
