Can I translate a Trados 2007 project in Studio 2011 and then export back the TM to Trados 2007?

If I export as TMX from Studio 2011 when finished, will this work in most of the cases without a hitch?

I know that most of my customers accept this, if they provide me with the Trados 2007 TM, that I export the TM to to TMX 1.4b, create a new in Studio 2011 and import the TMX there. I translate in Studio 2011 and then export as TMX when finished.

Instead of TMX in the end, is there any way of making it a textfile? Import the TMX in Trados 2007 again, and export as textfile from there?

Since you can only export to a TMX file in Studio, it should be no problem to import the file in the Workbench. However, you will at the very least lose any Context Match information. From there you can also export the TM to a TXT file format.

You may want to try the OpenExchange app "SDLXliff2Tmx." The handy tool allows you to convert your SDLXLIFF files directly to TMX. You can also export your files to a TXT format, although the structure differs greatly from the one I mentioned above.
