Hi, me again. Most of my clients/agencies do not have Studio 2009 or 2011. I have been working with 2007 until recently, now I am using 2011, but not found out how to save the bilingual files as ttx for my agencies. I am fed up with reading reams of incomprehensible texts only to discover they do not apply!
anyone help?
thanks a lot

You can't, but there's a turnaround May 15, 2012

AFAIK, You can't deliver TTX files to clients from Studio 2011.

On the other hand:
You can open a Word/Excel/other file in TagEditor
Save the TTX file
And then open the TTX file in Studio 2011

You would then be able to save a target TTX file that the client can open in TagEditor.

Hope it helps!

You could try an Open Exchange App May 15, 2012

Hi Heather,

This link turned up today from SDL:

Could it be the answer to a maiden's prayer?

not that one... May 15, 2012


You need the SDLXLIFF to Legacy Converte application from the OpenExchange. This will convert the SDLXLIFF to a TTX or a Bilingual Doc(x). It's worth testing with your client first that they are happy with this because it is a TTX created from an SDLXLIFF and not the same as that created through TTXiT or Workbench.

You can download the app free of charge from here... and it is pretty popular.
