Hi everybody,
I have started using Trados Studio 2011 not long ago and I am still a newbe in the field. All I know is that at the end of the project I have a .sdlproj file. My employer wants me to send him the completed job in a .sdlppx file.
How can I do it? Can I covert it in some way, or is there a way to save the file in .sdlppx format in the first place?
Thanks a lot for your help!

Best regards,
Massimiliano Bonatto

Packages sent out from Studio Professional are .sdlppx (they cannot be created in Studio Freelance).
Return packages created by Studio Freelance (from an .sdlppx you are sent) are .sdlrpx for return to the agency.

So the agency has to send you a package (.sdlppx) for you to be able to return the package (.sdlrpx).

A "package" can contain TMs and termbases in addition to the source files. That's the whole point of packages! If the agency didn't send you an .sdlppx, you can't return a package, you can only 'save target as' and return the target files.
