Is there a way to convert multiple files to ttx format?

In my case I have to convert over 400 htm files into ttx format... It takes nearly a minute to open each.
Even if I select multiple files in Tag Editor, I have to select .ini file for each file and that is very time consuming.

Thank you in advance!

I suppose you are not working with T2009 orT2011, and that you want to obtain bilingual ttxs.

Using a blank memory, in TWB go to Tools>Translate. Check "Segment unknown sentences." Go to Add and select all the htm files you want to convert. Click on "Translate" and that is it. For 400 files it will take some time.

What I don´t understand is what you need the .ini file for. Are not the files standard html? If so, TRADOS already knows how to identify the tags on them for producing the TTXs.
