I am translating a XLIFF file and want to generate a bilingual version to send to client.

Unfortunately, I can generate a bilingual one in SDL XLIFF file, so my client does not accept.

Anybody helps me??? Crying!

.. and I am unclear whether you are really translating an XLIFF file. Can I see the file? If you were then saving as target from the SDLXLIFF file created in Studio would create the XLIFF file you need.

text in <source> should be in English Feb 11, 2011

Actually, I got a XLIFF file after using Save Target as.

The issue is that the text between the tags and in the generated XLIFF are all in Vietnamese.

What I need is text between tags remain in English. So our client can compare translation.

Bilingual file Feb 11, 2011

Bilingual file= file with 2 visible languages. If it is a *.sdlxliff, it is a bilingual file in Trados 2009 version. You need not compare with Word based bilingual file, *.ttx file, *.itd file etc. in Trados 2007 version or older.
