I tried to check if such a topic was already present, but I failed, so bear with me...

I'm using MemoQ (7.8.122) and there's something that puzzles me. If I create a handoff package to be sent to a Translator and a Reviewer, is there a way to avoid having to reimport the package in-between?
Right now it's:

Me: .mqout → Translator: .mqback → Me: .mqout → Reviewer: .mqback → Me.

This means that if the translator somewhat delivers way before the deadline, I need to be at the PC to receive, import and resend it. It seems a huge waste of time to me.
It would be much better if the translator could send the package to the reviewer, who would in turn send the final to me. But as far as I can see, the translator creates a .mqback file when using Deliver/Return that the reviewer can't open. I need to import it and create another .mqout for the reviewer.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance to everyone!
