Dear fellow translators,

I received a SDLX itd sdlxliff file, and I can't open it because I only have the SDLX Lite version.

So because of that, i need somebody who got SDLX Elite who can save the file in SDLX Edit Document file, so I can open and translate the text.

I would very much appreciate if anybody wanted to help me out with this?

Looking forward to receive a respons from who might be in the position to help me.

thank you in advance for your help!

Maybe some confusion over software here Jul 25, 2012

Hello Martin,

None of the versions of SDLX can open an SDLXLIFF out of the box. To handle your workflow you either need to use SDL Trados Studio which will open the SDLXLIFF and allow you to save the SDLXLIFF with completed translation, or the ITD if the original ITD was embedded into the SDLXLIFF.

Or, you need to ask your client to simply send you the ITD. If they are managing the SDLXLIFF then they should be able to provide either format for you.
