Hi, if a customer creates a ttx file from inx file and gives it to a translator to translate, who should export the translated file into original format (inx) - the customer or the translator?

The client Jun 4, 2010

The client, since the translator has no means to create a target INX file without having the source INX file.

Either the client sends the source INX file along with the TTX file, or he creates the target INX himself when the translator delivers the translated TTX file.

Who should save to the original format? Jun 4, 2010

Thank you Marie-Claude. I thought, normally, the person, who created TTX should save it back to INX.
The translator has both TTX and original INX, but when trying to save as INX faults appear and he can not create INX. Is it a customer's or translator's fault? I.e. who must spend time/money to fix the export problems with the translated file?

INX troubles Jun 4, 2010

Hi Andrey,
INX files are quite troublesome in TagEditor (see the numerous posts in this forum). Generally, it is advised that the TRANSLATOR receives the INX, opens it in TagEditor and provides the client both with the bilingual TTX and the final INX export.

If the CLIENT prepares the TTX and sends it to the translator, it may well be the case that the translator uses a different TagEditor build or even a different INX-filter within the same TagEditor build which may make the final INX export impossible.

So, if the CLIENT prepared the TTX and now cannot save it as target, it's most probably his fault.

I agree with Stanislav. INX files are extremely tricky and everybody throughout the chain must have the same version of TagEditor (version and build) and INX filter. And even then, there is no 100% guarantee back conversion will work.

We deal with INX problems daily And I am starting to think INX files are pure evil...

Hi Marie-Claude,
in fact, Studio handles both INX and IDML files very well. At least no issues for me so far...

Oh I know... Jun 4, 2010

But where I work in-house we are still stuck witth 2007 build 863, because we are also using TeamWorks. And the version we have now is not compatible with Studio files.

Our experience has also shown that INX-based TTX files translated in Studio, then back converted to TTX and INX also have problems.

Personally I work with Studio whenever I can But in a corporate environment, we don't always get the choice of what tool we are using. And considering it took us about 2 years to get our current versions (Trados and TeamWorks) approved and implemented, we won't be upgrading any time soon...
