I received a project today to be translated using TagEditor in conjunction with a configuration file (.ini). I'd really like to use Studio instead of TagEditor. I know it is possible to use Studio on TTX files but I don't have any experience using .ini files. Is it possible to use the .ini file in Studio? If so, where can I find information on how to do it? If I have to, I can use TagEditor but this brings up another question. How do I incorporate the .ini file when using TagEditor?

Any guidance would be most humbly appreciated!

***UPDATE - I seem to have found another post that addresses this issue. The only question I still have is "will the ttx file that I create to send back to the client comply with the original specs?"

You can check afterwards Feb 1, 2011

Open the TTX in Studio (ignoring the INI), translate in Studio, export finished translation to TTX. Open TagEditor and go through the whole thing using the INI file. If there are any problems you should pick them up at this stage.

Studio reads TTX - and this is "Standard" Feb 1, 2011

So what Studio will produce will be TTX, exactly the same as the one you imported.
No ini necessary for that. First when saving the target format this ini will be used.
With other word, when you deliver the TTX to the customer he will not notice, if it was translated in TagEditor or Studio unless he opens the file in Notepad and reads the file heading.

Thanks Feb 1, 2011

Thanks Jerzy and Gillian,

I was just concerned becuase they were very specific about using the ini file that they provided, stating that their post production would be compromised if I didn't use TagEditor with it!

Do a test Feb 1, 2011

Translate some few lines of the TTX in Studio, then save it as target (Save as target in Studio will deliver the TTX, NOT the real target text).
Send it to the customer asking them to test if evertyhing is OK.
As reason you can simply tell them, that you wanna be sure everything goes fine before you really start working on the project . As they have so specific ini it is not a bad idea to test to make sure your systems are really compatible.

I am not a Trados user but Feb 1, 2011

I guess the procedure should be different than described above.
I would first open the ttx file in TagEditor with the ini file provided, and then translate against an empty TM to populate all segments (copy source to target). Now your ttx file is ready for translation with Studio (or any other CAT tool).
