I know TagEditor problems have been discussed on this forum before.
I understand that to clean up or safe target file only it's necessary to keep the file in the original directory where it was created. How can I clean up the .ttx file after editing, when the original TagEditor file was created by a translator and the client needs me to finalize the file and clean it up?
I tried changing the directory to the current one in NotePad, but it did not work. Any ideas?
Thank you so much!

Is the ending of the files *.rtf.ttx or something similar? Mar 16, 2009

Perhaps the final files are from a program you do not have, so you cannot clean them up? Do you get any errors?

I never have the files in the same directory as the one I received them (I keep a copy in a folder named Original, and work on the copy in the folder Translation) and I have not encountered any problems, though to be more truthful, the client usually wants the *.ttx and not a clean file.

Maybe this topic will also help you: http://www.proz.com/forum/sdl_trados_support/130303-is_it_compulsory_to_have_the_original_word_file_to_clean_a_ttx_file.html#1080905

Thank you Effie!
I was able to clean the file up by keeping the source file and the translated file in the same directory.
Thank you!
