Converting SDLX and TTX back and forth

Dear Colleagues,

I have recently experienced an issue with interchanging files between SDLX 2007 and Tageditor.

My client asked me to deliver clean and unclean files.

Since I hate working in Tageditor, I did all the project in SDLX, exported the translated file and then saved the SDLX file in TTX format and delivered the whole thing.

Problem is that the proofreader inserted some corrections in my TTX files and the client wanted me to export and redeliver the proofread files. When I tried to do the export directly from the corrected TTX, I only got an unusable file which, if opened in Word, looked a bit as SDLX and, if opened with SDLX, resulted in an "unexpected file" error message.

Can anyone suggest a solution to this problem?

The only thing I could do was create a new TM from these files and reapply it to the source files, and then export as normal, but this is a bit time-consuming.

Thanks in advance
