Hi everyone,

I'm using Trados Studio 2009 for the first time and used the editor view to translate a PPT file.

I verified and finalised the document, how do I now convert it back to the target PPT document?

I've tried opening the file in PowerPoint like the help topic tells you, but all I get is gobbledygook.

When you finalize the target is produced May 4, 2011

Right click the file in Files view and use Open containing folder command.
The translated PPT should be there.

As simple as that!

The first time I tried it didn't work, but I saved it under a different file name and started again. This time it work.
