Does anyone know if there is a way to open a .ttx file in Word 2010? Older posts led me to download TTXpress, but it does not seem compatible with my version of Word. Many thanks in advance!

.ttx is xml/text actually. it can be opened in/ any text editor. Just open it as text in Word.

Thank you for your reply! That does work, but I end up with all the tags and the source text. Is that what it should look like? I was hoping to see the translation, which I don't.

That´s what you should see.

Which was the source file the ttx was created from?
If it was a Word file, and you have the original file, you could go to File > Save Target as and create the target file.

But a ttx file is a bilingual file, so no matter which program you open it with, you´ll always get source text + tags + target text.

If you want to have the translation in a Word file, you can always select the whole text in TagEditor, copy it to clipboard, paste it in a Word file and then, delete manually the source text and tags.

Hope this helps

Marina

Yes. If you intend to get the transated version of the Word, open the .ttx in Trados TagEdit, then File->Save Target as.... After that, open the target file you just saved in Word.
