Dear colleagues,

I got a project to translate with TagEditor (source file .xlf) and I need to send it to a proofreader who doesn't have Trados.

I tried the following workaround: convert the .ttx file in xliff with Swordfish, perform the changes, save the xliff file and then convert it back to .ttx again. However, the final .ttx wasn't ok, the code (header) was different from the original one.

Do you have an idea how I can sort this out? The best solution would be a free programm which allows the proofreader to work directly in the TradosTag document without having to convert or reconvert anything, so as not to change the code/settings.

Or do you have another idea for a workaround;-)?

Thank you very much for your help!

Best regards and have a nice weekend,
Mattia

Use Studio and the Bilingual Preview Generator May 23, 2010

Hi Mattia,

One solution would be to use SDL Trados Studio 2009 instead. Then you could create a word, or excel, document from the sdlxliff with the bilingual preview generator and the reviewer could review this.

Regards

Paul

Hi Paul,

Best regards,

PlusToyz May 23, 2010

Have you tried to convert the ttx using PlusToyz? That is, if you are able to find a download site... Perhaps somebody out there knows where to get it now?

PlusToyz, etc May 23, 2010

Hi Antonín,

PlusToyz seems to be available only in the Wordfast Yahoogroup or some download sites. I'll try the Wordfast Yahoogroup first.

@ Yossi,

thanks for the link, but TTxpress seems to be interesting only if the translation is already a word file. My problem is the TTX first has to be converted into Word/XLS, reviewed and then converted from Word/XLS into TTX.

@ Jorge,

thank you! Just sent you an e-mail.

Thank you all!

I'll let you know how this ends;-)

Regards,
Mattia

Trados package not convincing May 23, 2010

I'm perhaps forced to work with this tool by one of my best clients. But the comments I meet about it are all but not convincing. I dont want to buy the Trados package. Please help me with your arguments.

Mattia, TTXpress is a Word template that converts TTX files to RTF and then the RTF files back to TTX.

I work with it a lot. If you want, I can send you the template.
