Context TM with old bilingual files in RTF format?
Thread poster: MITTrans
Mar 31, 2011

Is it possible to use Context TM when the old project's bilingual files are in RTF format ( instead of TTX )? Context TM seems to need either TTX or BIF format. Is there any value in converting all the bilingual RTFs into TTX format? My gut tells me this probably wouldn't work, but I thought I'd check here to see if anyone had any ideas for this situation.

The project is a RoboHelp project that was translated in the past, but back then the files were translated in RTF format, not TTX. Context TM would be the ideal way forward for processing this new update.

Thanks in advance for any help or advice!
