Dear all,

I am quite inexperienced with TagEditor and was wondering if bilingual files can be saved as both clean and unclean? If so, what are the steps to do so? Do I need to select the translated text, open a new TagEditor window and save it as unclean? I don't want to mess with it, now that I just finished translating a file.

Thank you for any input and apologies if this has been discussed already.

Mariana

But you cannot do that. I studied a lot to learn how to do it, but it is impossible.

You can only use the TM you used to translate the file in TagEditor in order to translate the file in Trados Workbench.

Thank you, Vadim. I was just wondering whether I had to do it, but if it is not an option, the client won't be expecting an unclean file.

It actually is possible to return a bilingual file. It will be a .ttx file though rather than the original format (e.g., MS Word). If you have the file open in TagEditor, once it has been translated, choose File>Save bilingual as.... From there, you can do the file name as you otherwise would, but leave whatever comes after the [dot], and leave the "save as type:" as "SDL Trados Bilingual Documents". So if your original file is example.doc, when you click "save bilingual as..." choose the folder... See more

So if your original file is example.doc, when you click "save bilingual as..." choose the folder to save it to, and you could change the name to example-trans.doc. You will then have a file in the folder named "example-trans.doc.ttx". This is the bilingual, "unclean" file.Collapse
