Hi all,

Does anybody know how to convert a TTX file into an uncleaned Word file?

Many thanks,

One way of doing it Nov 30, 2012

You can copy all the text from the ttx file using Ctrl+A and Ctrl+C.
Then insert it all in a new word document.
Run the Trados Clean macro (not on the toolbar, so look for it in the macros).
Delete all internal and then external codes by right-clicking and selecting "Select all text with similar formatting" under "Styles".

Bilingual file with tags needed Nov 30, 2012

Thank you for your help Jørgen.

Unfortunately, the original file is a .doc with tags. I need an uncleaned file (bilingual file) with all the external tags and the original format.

TTXpress will do it automatically Nov 30, 2012

TTxpress (free) will convert the ttx file to rtf and viceversa. It will keep the tags (both internal and external).

I lost the track of the link to download it, but I have it in my PC. Just contact me to jorge_payan at hotmail dot com and I will send it to you.
