I am quite an experienced Trados user and have no problems handling various file formats. This post is more about expressing my surprise rather than asking for help.

So, on Friday afternoon I received a set of TTX files for translation. They were made from XML files, and I realized (too late) that I had no *.ini file for them. Now:

1. I was able to analyze the files without any problems.
2. I managed to convert them to RTF (using Trados' own XConvert in VB script). I translated the RTF files and will use the TM to translate the TTX files when I get the INI.
3. The code within the TTX files already defines which tags are internal and external.

So the question is why does TagEditor require INI files to work with TTX files that have already been created? Any ideas?
